Student reporters at Pittsburg High School in Kansas published an investigative article on their new principal, Amy Robertson, in the school paper, the Booster Redux. The article questioned the legitimacy of Robertson’s degrees and time as an education consultant. Corllins University where Robertson earned her degrees is not an accredited university either with the Department of Education or Better Business Bureau. The school also has a reputation as a diploma mill, where one could buy a degree.
Robertson was previously the CEO of Atticus I S Consulting and principal of American Scientific School in Dubai. The American Scientific School in Dubai was closed in 2013 after receiving unsatisfactory inspection reports from 2008-2012. Dubai’s education authority also claimed Robertson was unauthorized to serve as principal of that school.
Robertson has tendered her resignation from the position.
