15,000 College Students Possibly Affected by Certificate Fraud

The Telegraaf daily reports that fraud with certificates of qualification at the College Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) possibly affects 15,000 students. They might have become the victims of years of mismanagement and intimidation. Peter Fonkert of the Economy and Management Studies Department says that results of exams were introduced mistakenly into the computer due to errors in the administration system. He said that the chaos on campus is hard to describe. Students with the lowest grades, might have received the highest ones. These results were never corrected because teachers were afraid of measures being taken against them. Sixty percent of HvA teachers have expressed in writing their lack of confidence in the college’s management .
