+ - Kansas Governor Appoints CIO with Degree from Fake->

Submitted by kstatefan40
kstatefan40 (922281) writes "The Topeka Capital-Journal is reporting that Kansas Governor Sam Brownback appointed Jim Mann as Chief Information Officer this week (with a salary of $155,000), and noticed that Mr. Mann listed his education B.S. in Business Administration from a degree mill called the University of Devonshire. "The school, according to a 2002 article by Wired, was owned by American residents in Romania, used mailing address in the United Kingdom, printed materials in Israel and banked in Cyprus. One estimate placed at 70,000 the number of degrees sold in the United States by their University Degree Program doing business as University of Devonshire and a series of other names." A spokeswoman for Governor Brownback said the decision by Brownback to hire Mann wasn't based on Mann's scholarly performance with the distance learning university.

A college degree isn't everything in IT, but this just seems like a really bad idea."
