Texas shuts company for running online high school 'diploma mill'

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/14/2014 - 05:45
By Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - Texas has won court approval to close a Houston-based company the state said ran a fraudulent online program that offered high school diplomas for a flat fee and no course work, state officials said on Wednesday. Last week, a district judge ordered the company known as Lincoln Academy to stop accepting students, shut down its website and social media pages and phase out operations, the attorney general's office said. Lincoln Academy, described as "a diploma mill" by the state, claimed its program was nationally accredited and its diplomas were accepted by colleges, employers and the U.S. military, the office said."In the end, consumers pay hundreds of dollars for a worthless piece of paper that provides none of the promised benefits of a legitimate high school education," the state said in its lawsuit. Fort Worth resident Chelsea Moon, 25, enrolled in the program in June and was told she needed to complete a course before graduating, but that turned out to be only a test.
