What is whistleblowing in schools?

Higher education has become a lucrative business for thousands of colleges and universities across the country. Most of these institutes rely on the $150 billion they receive in federally backed student loans and grants to stay in business, so they can keep driving up enrollment prices without worrying about attendance.

However, many schools still turn to fraud to increase their bottom line. Anti‐kickback laws are violated by illegally paying recruiters commissions, students grades are inflated to qualify for more grant money, and accreditation standards are failed to comply with in order to save on expenses

These education scams leave the future graduates with lackluster career prospects and overwhelming debt.

It’s easy for schools to relegate the issue of having and implementing a whistleblower system to the bottom of their daily ‘to-do’ lists. A robust whistleblower policy is however an important part of managing a school’s Student Duty of Care, Workplace Health and Safety and School Governance requirements. Whistleblowing should not be seen by schools as threatening or complex, but as a process which encourages compliance amongst staff and also works to protect students, school executives and governors..

It is exceptionally difficult for intelligence agencies acting independently to discover the operation's extreme techniques. Despite the vital role of protecting and rewarding persons who report criminal activity, further enforcement skills are required.
