The BBC is reporting that some US nuclear scientists may not be as qualified as they say they are.
Investigators have established that 28 top federal employees including nuclear monitors possess bogus college degrees and the phenomenon may be much bigger.
This all sounds familiar, where have I heard this before?
One told the GAO he had obtained a master’s degree for $5,000 though he had neither attended classes nor sat tests.
The certificate, drawn up on the basis of his “life experience” and past studies and described by the man himself as a “joke”, helped him to advance in his career.
Yes those life experience degrees are certainly worth the paper they are written on.
