THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT —  The new IT chief officer hired by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has a degree from University of Devonshire — one of the grandaddies of diploma mills according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. The resume of Jim Mann, the new IT officer, states his Business Administration is from there and also states he attended the college from 1993 to 1995.

The Topeka Capital-Journal: The university isn’t among accredited institutions in the database maintained by the Council of Higher Education Accreditation in the United States. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education in the United Kingdom does not list the university tied to Mann as an accredited school.

Wired magazine says: “The school was owned by American residents in Romania, used mailing address in the United Kingdom, printed materials in Israel and banked in Cyprus. One estimate placed at 70,000 the number of degrees sold in the United States by their University Degree Program doing business as University of Devonshire and a series of other names.”

The governor’s spokesperson, Sherriene Jones-Sontag said this: “Jim Mann was hired based on his more than 20 years of top-flight, private-sector experience, information technology is a constantly changing field where the best preparation is private-sector experience.”

IMO, keeping a employee with a fake degree on the payroll, especially one paid with taxpayer monies a huge mistake.

Do you agree?
