Fake Accreditation – History of WAUC

article04_image01This website tells the story of fraudulent WAUC (World Association of Universities and Colleges) and does NOT promote this organization. Make sure you understand the American system and don’t be a victim of the fake accredited organizations. You will find on this website full explanation of the official educational system so make sure to check all details. So check out this post about Fake Accreditation – History of WAUC.

WAUC was an organization set up and owned by Maxine Klein Asher (August 15, 1930 – May 19, 2015).
It was the hub of American World University, an unaccredited institution with more than 7,000 students around the globe which was commonly considered to be a diploma mill.

In 1993 she founded the World Association of Universities and Colleges (WAUC), an accrediting service unrecognized by the U.S. Department of Education, that gave its imprimatur to a host of alternative institutions.

Almost every day Columbus University and Lacrosse University, both of which are considered diploma mills by some government regulators, advertised in the back pages of USA Today. In bold type, they tout their accreditation from the association. That made Ms. Asher a central figure in the shadowy world of unaccredited higher education. Also, students getting geared up for the GED exam have become victims of these fraudulent practices. Shame!

How American World University Works – Diploma Mill

fakedegreesAmerican World University (AWU) is an unaccredited educational institution that offers post-secondary distance learning education programs that has no physical campus. It also is awarding academic degrees. AWU was set up by Maxine Asher in 1990, and first was headquartered in Rapid City, South Dakota, until it was forced out of the state in 2000.

American World University has never received any accreditation from any U.S. recognized accrediting body, though it is listed as ‘accredited’ by WAUC (the World Association of Universities and Colleges), another organization set up by Maxine Asher. 

AWU offers students the opportunity to earn college credit based on their life experience through distance education courses. The legitimacy of the school’s academic services are however disputed by many education professionals, and some say that academically, there’s nothing at AWU.

A Strange Rule In School Examinations In New York City

 

New York City Department of Education in the United States banned the use of 50 words in the exam schools for all levels of education. This is done to minimize the potential for unpleasant emotions among the students. So read on to learn more about a strange rule in school examinations in New York City.

Some words are banned include birthday, dinosaur, Halloween, and dancing. As reported by the New York Post, the word dinosaur is prohibited because it could lead to evolution, and Halloween suggests paganism (not religious), and the word anniversary has the potential to create hostility among students who are not followers of the Jehovahs Witnesses to celebrate his birth.

In addition, the word poverty was also banned because it’s opposed to wealth, which led to some students feel excluded. The Department also forbids mention of the word divorce and disease. (more…)

Aren’t We All Beautiful And Precious Gems?

Do you see yourself as beautiful? Flawless? A rare gem to be treasured? I struggle with this for myself. I’m not sure I’ve ever really felt beautiful. But aren’t we all beautiful and precious gems?

Growing up, I hated having red hair and freckles. From my childish point of view, I was the only kid in our entire school with red hair and freckles. I was the outsider, often called carrot top by my classmates. The horror!

Then I entered puberty and had terrible acne. I can barely look at my old school pictures. The scars left a lasting impression on the mental view I had of myself. Even now when I look in the mirror, I still see a flawed face from my teen years. Plus a few crow’s feet now resting around my eyes, and laugh lines around my mouth.

Once when I was single, a guy I dated for a short time, pointed out the wrinkles on my neck…and I was only in my early twenties at the time. I had never noticed them until that day. Now I see them every morning when I brush my hair.

Family Goal Planning And Traditions

I’m starting to think back over the year 2018. Despite the fact that not much seems to have changed in our family’s employment or income status, I recognize that God was very present and all the things I can smile about were actually blessings poured down from Heaven. For that matter, even the situations that were less than joyful, God made beautiful in His own way. So here we go setting out our family Goal Planning and Traditions for the new year.

I’ve shared before that I’m big on starting family traditions. New Years is no exception.

Every December, the week after Christmas, my husband and I start individually reflecting on the year we’re about to kiss goodbye and start planning for the year ahead.  We think of the good times and smile knowing God blessed us abundantly.  We think of the bad times, and again we smile knowing God’s mighty hand never stopped working.

The Best Of 2018 Mom Style

The week between Christmas and New Year is not just a week for family goal planning, but it is also a week for reflection.  I’m not a big believer in harping on the things that didn’t go well.  Really, what good does it do to beat our failures to death?

Chances are, we’ve already learned our valuable lessons and moved on. So what I like to look back on are the wonderful things we saw, like the San Francisco Art Market last year. Those things are worth celebrating. Here’s the best of 2018 in my world. See also this great video “To All Those Who Mum – Mother’s Day 2018” video:

The Art of Marriage

In February, my husband and I attended a two-day weekend marriage retreat our church hosted. What an incredible weekend it was! We spent intentional time together focusing on our marriage, communicating about important topics in a loving way, and confirmed that we are still madly in love with each other. Every couple needs to take time away to check-in with each other and make sure their marriage is still on solid ground.

Let Your Religion Help You Become More Social

Blogs have been around for quite a while now.  What you’ll notice about the majority of them is that the focus is on the individual. It may be a good idea to let your religion help you become more social. There are blogs on:

  • being a mom
  • traversing through illness
  • making a home
  • music, art, hobbies
  • organizing
  • decorating
  • traveling

What you don’t find very often are blogs about fictional characters or religion. Believe me, I’ve searched the internet.  So why in Heaven’s name would I want to write a blog about my religious life and fictional characters when it seems like most people are drawn to the more personal.

Five Things Parents Should Bear In Mind During The Holidays

In today’s world where we share a lot (everything?) on social media, it’s easy to get caught up in what someone else’s traditions are, and a keeping up with the Joneses type of scenario. Here are five things parents should bear in mind during the holidays as you travel through this year’s hectic Holiday Season.

It’s up to you and your partner which traditions you participate in.
I know, I know! Everyone and their brother is jumping on the Elf on a Shelf tradition but you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. And you should have absolutely no guilt about not doing it, any more than you should if you choose to do it. Same goes for Santa, St. Nicholas, trees and everything else. Pick and choose which traditions you want to participate in and that’s that!

In our house we do Santa, we do milk and cookies for Santa and we sprinkle some oats outside for the reindeer. We put up a tree, we fill stockings, we go to Christmas Eve service at church, and we put family before anything else during the holidays. We do not do Elf on a Shelf. We do not do St. Nicholas. And Santa does not bring gifts for our pets. Those are the traditions we participate in. Period.

The American School System

The American School System – PRIMARY & SECONDARY SCHOOL

In America, students are attending elementary (primary) and secondary school for a total of 12 years. These years are called 1st through 12th grades. After kindergarten (some also go to pre-kindergarten) U.S. children go to primary school, which is usually called elementary school at around age six.

After five or six years they move on to secondary school. Secondary school generally includes two programs: first they attend ‘middle school’, also called junior high’ (without ‘school’), and the second stage is ‘high school.’

When they graduate from high school (12th grade), students will be awarded a diploma or certificate, which allows for a college or university education (known as ‘higher education’). Some students don’t finish high school, they can get a GED diploma.

Many students who try to get the GED certificate are working individuals so they use online programs to get ready for the GED test. Students need to pass the exam that contains 4 subjects. This GED exam can be taken only in the official GED centers, it’s not offered online. So never attempt to buy online the GED diploma!
