Could Edison State scandal have been avoided?
FORT MYERS - Edison State college is reeling after nearly a year of controversy.
First allegations of mismanagement and cronyism, now problems with degrees.
But could the course-swapping scandal have been avoided?
An outspoken faculty member says yes, and that the latest developments are only going to make the school's continued accreditation process more difficult.
Professor Russell Swanson tells me, these tough times at Edison State could have been avoided had the right management decisions been made and money spent in the right places...instead of exorbidant salaries and pricey payouts.
"We're probably spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in areas we should not instead of spending them in student services. With more student advisors, degree issues and course swapping issues get caught," Swanson tells 4 In Your Corner.
