Emerging Education Policy Issues in Law: Fraud.
Sandow, Stuart A.
This document is one in a series of papers designed to explore the legal aspects of potential issues and problems arising in higher education. This particular paper deals with the case of a student suing his school board for fraud. His reasoning for the suit is that he can read only on the 7th grade level but was awarded a high school diploma anyway. The lawyers surveyed concerning this case either felt strongly that such an instance could never occur or that it would occur within the next 6 months to 4 years. Ninety percent of the lawyers surveyed were of the opinion that such a case could avoid going through the judicial process by going instead through legislation; 80% see the event as being beneficial to society; and 85% see the event as increasing the quality of education.
