At Coral Springs School, Diploma Costs $200 (Diploma Not Included)
She owed that employment, in part, to a diploma she earned at a correspondence school in Coral Springs. She had paid the so-called Clarmont School $200 admission, performed whatever assignments it sent in return, and in exchange the Clarmont staff sent her a diploma on official-looking parchment. Stanford would settle happily into a job at a day care center. Until the day that state regulators showed up to check the staff's credentials. Only then did Stanford learn that she'd been had. She was fired. Here's a text version of her story, and here she is telling her story to a local news station.
The real story here is how, apparently, the state of Ohio checks the credentials of its day-care workers once every 15 years.
