    Of course, this is one of the sleaziest diploma mills around... one could do just as well to print a diploma on their laser printer as to send money to these bozos.

    And for the convenient price of only $800.00+ one can receive the bachelors, masters and doctorate.

    Perhaps Trinity could also give a Big Mac and fries with this degree "value pack."

    This is yet another of several newer sites pretending to come from Spain. The Michigan address is new, however, and curious in that this is material representative of the U.K. incarnation of Trinity. Maybe we're going to have a turf war now.

    Some of the text is identical to that on Earlscroft's pages, also.

    It certainly seems like a little empire. Trinity C&U (in this incarnation), Earlscroft and Capitol all seem to be connected and share text on their websites.

    So Trinity C&U now claims to be in Spain. Maybe there is something to that. AED has recently been plagued with a guy who apparently posts through a Portugese ISP and only seems willing to stop flaming Dr. Bear in order to defend Earlscroft. His spelling and slang seem to suggest some connection with Britain. He seemed conversant with British educational law in his exchange with Marshall Rice.

    Perhaps one of the principals of this thing is a Briton with a winter home in Spain or something.

    Whatever it is, a number of people are involved, and they are running multiple schools simultaneously. That could involve lots of money and the need to protect their cash cow.

    It's all speculation of course, but I would not be surprised at all if Factwatcher was associated with this.

    After a second look, at least three quarters of the material on this site is a copy of Earlscroft (or vice versa). There's no question about the Trinity-Capitol-Earlscroft-Concordia-Ashington connection. Trinity C&U (at least the U.K. version) has always claimed to operate from Spain, afaik, but there's never been any evidence to show that there's a grain of truth in the claim.

    I'm in full agreement with your speculations regarding the location of factwatcher, though his inconsistent British spelling makes me wonder if he didn't originate elsewhere.

    Hmm. On the diploma of the Michigan high school principal who was much in the news last year, when it was learned she had bought her MA from Trinity/South Dakota in order to qualify for the principal job, there is the tiny indicia of "U.I.C." which stands for United Interdenominational Church, which is or has been the parent entity of Trinity/UK.

    Incidentally, the person who was in line for the job that went to the Trinity alumna has sued the Benton Harbor School District and its superintendent. Goes to trial next fall.
