I had a terrible high school rank and graduated college with honors. All that matters is how a teacher performs in his or her specific program of study in college or graduate school.

I've always wondered why relevant experience isn't a qualification for a teaching career. I work with a lot of current and former Congressional...

I find it ironic you choose to quote Martin Niemöller. He was a pastor, anti-communist, and Nazi sympathizer when Hitler first rose to power.

Elkins, St. Thomas and Capella University are both accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC), along with the University of Minnesota, Macalester College and many other schools in the region. Most for-profit schools with regional accreditation are accredited by HLC, which has recently been in the news for denying accreditation to a group of investors trying to purchase a failing private nonprofit school and turning it into a...
