Hocking College, a two-year institution in Ohio, has fired 13 faculty members, saying that they lack credentials required for their positions, The Athens Messenger reported. Some of the faculty members have taught at the college for more than 20 years. The college acted after its accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission, said the college was in violation of its standards by employing these instructors. Two of the 13 lacked any college degree, while others lacked a required advanced degree or a degree in a specific area.
