Alabama colleges hire phony PhDs

The president of an Alabama community college holds a diploma-mill PhD asserts Dumb in Alabama: College Presidents Have Diploma Mill Degrees in The American Reporter.  According to Richard Hardin, a researcher for of Alabama Cooperative for Public Education, Bishop State‘s president, James Lowe, Jr., holds a PhD from San Francisco Technical University, an unaccredited school.

Academic deans also lack academic qualifications: Latitia McCane, dean of Instructional Services at Bishop State, claims a PhD from Lacrosse University and  Bruce E. Gearhart, director of Educational Talent Search at  Trenholm State, holds a PhD from Columbia Pacific UniversityAll are notorious diploma mills that lack accreditation, Hardin writes.

A 2008 Alabama law requires college employees to hold credentials from “duly accredited institutions,” but state officials have not investigated reports of ineligible college employees, Hardin charges.
