Ed. Dept. fights diploma mills

The Education Department will draft and post online a list of accredited institutions, said Secretary Rod Paige.

Senate Governmental Affairs Committee chairwoman Susan Collins (R-Maine) requested the listing, but the proposal for a credible and accessible list emerged from a so-called diploma-mill summit held in January by executive and legislative branch officials.

Collins has said that a consolidated list of accredited schools would help employers, prospective students and parents make sure the credentials they seek or review represent authentic education achievements.
