#LinkedIn Should Verify Your Profile #socialmedia

Unlike Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, LinkedIn doesn’t provide a way to verify your profile.

If you are a high-profile person those social networks will put a little tick next to your name and photo so people know it’s really you.

Indian state sacks hundreds of teachers over fake degrees

PATNA, July 9:

India’s Bihar state has sacked 1,100 school teachers in the last five years for faking their own education qualifications, an official said.

Bihar’s government has launched an investigation into the eastern state’s primary and secondary teachers to check the authenticity of their degrees, the official said.

“We have removed about 1,100 school teachers in last five years in the state for using forged degrees to get jobs,” said senior state education official R.S. Singh.

“Our investigation is on to verify degrees of more school teachers. It is a continuous process after recruitment of teachers,” R.S. Singh said.

The sackings underscore the immense problems facing the school system in India where teachers are underpaid and overworked, and tens of millions of children struggle to receive an adequate education.

The investigation was launched in the wake of a massive recruitment drive by the government in Bihar, one of India’s most impoverished and underdeveloped states, that started in 2006 in a bid to improve its schools.

The recruitment drive saw almost 250,000 people given teaching, assistant teaching and other jobs, but ultimately led to complaints about incompetence, officials said.

Several officials said recruited teachers were required to have a graduate degree, but verification of their certificates only started after their appointment.

Bihar’s Education Minister Brishen Patel said the verification process has now been stepped up.

“I have already directed concerned officials to speed up to verify degrees of all 250,000 contractual school teachers,” said Patel.

R.S. Singh said his education department has filed complaints with police against some of those teachers sacked, along with village council heads who had originally helped with the recruitment process.

Bihar, with a population of almost 100 million, has some of the poorest literacy rates in India.

Last year 23 children died after eating a free lunch contaminated with pesticide at an impoverished village school in the state.

Standards of education in rural India have declined almost every year since 2009 despite huge government investment, a survey by Indian education research group Pratham has found.

Indiana University’s choice of new swim coach with fake diploma mill degree raises concerns, questions

We are not talking about Johansen patronizing one of those cheesy websites that sell novelty Ivy League diplomas with your pet’s name emblazoned on it at $50 a pop.  Using cheap fake degrees to shore up resumes has become commonplace. After buying my pug dog an MBA online with honors in finance for $499, I did a search of LinkedIn and located almost 500 other professionals who boast diplomas from Rochville University, including college instructors, politicians, engineers and nuclear scientists. Rochville University is one of 20 or so fake colleges and high schools operated by Pakistani business man Salem Kureshi. Early this year, a Michigan court found Kureshi’s chain of online schools guilty of mass fraud and in violation of Rico laws. The court slapped a $22.7 million dollar fine on the degree mill conglomerate and issued a court order for Belford, a sister university and high school, to cease operations. Degree mills ought not to be taken lightly, especially by those institutions that are in the business of providing real educations and safeguarding academic integrity. Rochville’s other famous alumni: include William Drumheller, a Virginia preacher who murdered members of his flock after using a master’s in divinity earned at Rochville to get his job and gain the trust of an unsuspecting congregation. The preacher was also convicted of running a Medicare scam.

After the news hit the web about my dog and his online degree in 2009, both I and my dog received death threats. The Diploma Mill Police, the section of our site dedicated to consumer alerts on educational scams, is constantly under attack by degree mills. (And if you think I took those death threats to me or my dog lightly, let me assure you I did not.) Selling fraudulent degrees has become a fast way for felons and terrorists to acquire millions in ready capital.  In fact, the worst mass murderer in history, Anders Behring Breivik, who assassinated 77 young campers in Norway, funded his killing spree by operating a fake college credentials business online. I do not think Indiana University can justify turning a blind eye to a global epidemic of fraud and corruption in an area that is the very bedrock of their publicly-funded mission.
