Let’s say you run a small college with only 37 students. You’re the new kid on the block, you’ve only been in existence for five years. Your school is not accredited, heck you don’t even offer any degrees, just certificates in “biblical studies” or “general studies” as you are an outgrowth of the Evangelical Covenant Church. And those “general studies” you certify that the students have completed – they include absolutely no classwork in math.
By law religious schools can only receive federal funding for secular purposes. Yet your tiny, wholly religious, unaccredited “college” has received more than $1million in federal funds during the past two years.
How do you swing that kind of deal?
Step into Bush’s world.
