Wasser Goes Off-Line

James Wasser, the embattled school superintendent in Freehold who is personally responsible for legislation and regulations banning bonuses based on degrees from diploma mills, announced his resignation.

Wasser (formerly known as Dr. Wasser) used a doctoral degree from unaccredited online Breyer State University to bump up his salary by $2,500 per year, as did two other school administrators of Freehold Regional High School District. He’ll now serve as “administrator for special projects,” reports the Asbury Park Press, until 2011, presumably the date his contract expires.

The sad part about all of this is that it's increasingly difficult to distinguish between a "real" graduate degree in educational administration and a "fake" one.

Wasser's credibility and ethics have been "off-line" for quite some time. Just ask any person who has had to deal with him.
