I don't mean to be hardhearted, or to show bias for the home team, but come on, Leslie! For $200 you can barely rent a cap and gown, much less get an actual education. And for that paltry sum, you got a piece of paper that was apparently convincing enough to sustain 15 years' worth of employment. Rather than tell your sob story to a local TV crew, you should be thanking Clarmont, if it still exists. (A search of state records under that name shows only a "Clarmont Enterprises" registered in Florida but based in New York and which hasn't been active since 1994.)
The real story here is how, apparently, the state of Ohio checks the credentials of its day-care workers once every 15 years.
