Diploma mill laws

Postby Gus Sainz » Sun Feb 05, 2006 5:40 pm

“There's big money to be made in peddling bogus educational credentials, and significant harm to be done, and state governments are wisely trying to curb it. This week in Olympia, a bill that would make it a felony to sell or use a phony diploma passed out of the Senate Committee on Early Learning, K-12 and Higher Education a day ahead of the cutoff date for that action.

The measure's sponsor, Sen. Mark Schoesler, R-Ritzville, sees it as the state's duty to protect the integrity of college degrees that are honestly earned by citizens who invest the money and intellectual effort in getting an education. And his measure recognizes that the diploma mill operators aren't the only culprits in the picture.”
