A Nice bit of Investigative Journalism by these High School Students

A newly hired principal resigns after student journalists on the high school newspaper dug deeper into her resume’. Apparently, her doctoral degree was granted from a so-called “degree factory” named Corllins University. I’ve just done an internet search on “Corllins” and found a university website. The URL is “corluni.org” although the name in the header section of the website is “Corllins University”. Kudos to the students for uncovering this. This story was originally posted in the Washington Post.
