Why are those inside higher ed so hostile to offering job training and career credentialing as opposed to degrees?  Why can't we have more than one type of education coming out of higher ed? After all, we have more than one type of student .. yes???

Hi +Saud Kazia Nice info on diploma mills. My #pug dog, Chester, has a MBA he earned online > http://www.geteducated.com/diploma-mills-police/life-experience-college-degree/289-dog-gets-life-experience-online-mba-degree .

Degree mills are a REAL problem, and one we address constantly in the Diploma Mill Police section of our website. SEE> http://www.geteducated.com/diploma-mill-police

Advocate for affordable online colleges and transparency in online learning and higher education
Introduction
I designed and directed America’s first counseling center for online learners for America Online (1989-1996). I'm the founding CEO of GetEducated.com: a consumer group that rates, ranks, and verifies the credibility of online degrees. My advice to students has been sourced in the Wall Street Journal, Time, Fortune, U.S. News & World Report, CBS News and so on.  I'm the lead analyst for Get Educated's online college ratings and rankings helping uncover affordable online degrees from America's best online colleges.My pug dog, Chester Ludlow, has an online MBA, which says a lot about the work to be done bringing quality control to the area of online learning.
Bragging rights
In 2009, U.S. News & World Report Says: "Vicky Phillips, for 20 years the leading consumer advocate for online college students." Joyce Lain Kennedy career columnist says: "one of America's leading experts on education fraud."
