    At no time have I represented my doctoral degrees as being from an institution fully accredited by the American Psychological Association or other accrediting entity. In submitting applications for employment and licensure, I have always practiced full disclosure and transparency.
    I'd love to see what, exactly, he said to constitute full disclosure and transparency. If he has been disclosing to employers that his doctorate was unaccredited then I say leave him alone. Not because his degree is "good" or "legitimate" but because they accepted the risk that it wasn't when they hired him with such a statement.

    But I kind of doubt he was that transparent during a job search.

    Again, say what you will about the RA/NA debate. This guy would not be sweating right now if he had earned an Ed.D. from an NA school.

    I agree. I would also like to suggest that this is a case where this man can not claim to have done a lot of work, taken courses, written a dissertation, etc. Neither can he claim that he earned or deserved a PhD because you would clearly expect that he knows what is involved in legitimately earning a real PhD. To me is seems to be a case of blatant credential fraud. I don't know very much about the law but I wouldn't be unhappy if this guy was charged legally or sued in addition to losing his job.

    Baffle the uninformed with b.s. and slink away quietly. It often works.
