Pollution in Higher Education. Efforts of the U.S. Office of Education in Relation to Degree Mills.
Bureau of Postsecondary Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC. Accreditation and Institutional Eligibility Staff.
These papers concern the efforts of the U.S. Office of Education to eradicate "degree mills", that is, organizations that award degrees without requiring their students to meet educational standards for such degrees, standards that have been established and traditionally followed by reputable educational institutions. The rapid growth in degree mills and their negative effect on the American educational system are emphasized in light of persistent efforts to halt their advances. (MJM)
