She kinda has a point
March 31, 2009 - Jody Murphy
The Associated Press is reporting West Virginia University has about 118 undergraduate and master's degrees that appear to have some sort of descrepancy, i.e. credit-hour deficiencies.
School officials say the lack of records can neither prove nor disprove whether the students in question actually earned their degrees.
Quite a conundrum isn't it?
You may recall a few months ago, Heather Bresch, Gov. Joe Manchin's daughter, had her master's degrees yanked by the WVU after the school couldn't verify Bresch had completed the course work.
What is WVU going to with the other 117 questionable degrees?
It would seem to me the only thing they can do is rescind those degrees as well.
A few months ago, Bresch publicly wondered why her degree was the only one rescinded. What about the others? She even hinted at a possible lawsuit.
I think she has a pretty good point.
WVU officials are either going to have yank all those other questionable degrees - Boy, that will be a PR nightmare - or give Bresch back her degree on the heels of HUGE public apology.
One thing school officials can't do is nothing.
Aside from cleaning up the records snafu, officials are either going to have to rescind the other 117 degrees or return Bresch's.
I'll be curious to see what happens.
