    Typical incomplete reporting????

    I’m certainly not defending these so-called home-schools, but my understanding is the military now requires ALL home-schooled students to successfully complete a full-time semester of college before accepting them. (Somebody will surely correct me if that is wrong.) A semester in college should not be a big problem for the young woman in the video because in Texas community colleges are mostly open enrollment – no high-school diploma required!

    Now the dog part: that is just sad!:nono:

    My dog appeared in the online edition of Backpacker magazine back in 2001. No particular reason for mentioning this; I'm just bragging.

    Sounds like Texas needs to do a little more work on their home-school laws.

    In Louisiana, home-schooled high school students have to pass the GED to get a diploma.

    Alleged diploma mill program traced to Pakistan

    Humm.....

    Stay in school.

    It’s the one thing Sherese Gilbert always told her kids. But the irony? She herself was a dropout.

    “I didn’t think it was fair that I was preaching it to them and I didn’t honor it myself,” Gilbert said.

    But then the time-strapped mom found a solution online—Belford High School—which promised to provide “your gateway to success” with a high school diploma.

    “It really looked legit,” Gilbert said.

    I still say the family cat should've gotten a diploma too. Cats are smarter than dogs.

    Yep! Cats are smarter. Therefore, they do not need diploma!

    I guess in some other states, they're allowed to simply PAW it! :smile:

    Here's an even worse case - a dog, "Sunny" was awarded an MD by "Ashwood U." believed to be operating from Pakistan, as is Belford. If you read how he "qualified" - it's a hoot! Second-last paragraph under "Incidence of Fraudulent Degrees."

    e.g. "significant proctology experience sniffing other dogs' bums..."

    A dog got an MD degree? Have you found any cats with any doctorates?
