A recently hired high school principal has suddenly resigned because of student journalists digging into her past and uncovering what they thought was a scandal. This is what happens when students watch too much liberal media.
Amy Robertson was hired as the new principal of Pittsburg High School in Pittsburg, Kansas. Soon after the announcement, some students began looking into Robertson’s credentials, and because of what they found, Robertson felt it was appropriate to resign from a $93,000-a-year job.
According to Fox News, Corllins University, where Robertson received her master’s and doctoral degrees, appears not to be an accredited university. The students investigated the university for several weeks and then published their findings in the school paper on Friday, questioning Robertson’s qualifications for the position.

The students reportedly said that they did not want her to get fired, they just wanted to make sure the person who was in charge of their education was qualified. It seems they have been watching the Betsy DeVos left-wing smear campaign too closely.
“She was going to be the head of our school, and we wanted be assured that she was qualified and had the proper credentials,” one of the students, Trina Paul, told The Kansas City Star. “We stumbled on some things that most might not consider legitimate credentials.”
Additional findings showed that Corllins University’s website is quite out of date, with many of the links broken or leading to deleted pages. The Better Business Bureau address listing for the university also calls into question its authenticity, stating that “(t)he address being used by the company of 2885 Sanford Ave SW, #12844, Grandville, MI, is actually that of a company by the name of Mailbox Forwarding Inc.”

However, Robertson maintains that her credentials are legitimate, according to WND:
“The current status of Corllins University is not relevant, because when I received my M.A. in 1994 and my Ph.D. in 2010, there was no issue … All three of my degrees have been authenticated by the U.S. government.”
