The Army has suspended 29 recruiters and disciplined 33 others for their alleged roles in a scheme to provide recruits with fraudulent high school diplomas, officials said. Investigators said they found that Army recruits in Chicago had paid recruiting sergeants as much as $200 for a diploma from Roseland-Englewood Educational Center, a non-accredited school that was associated with Josephinum High School. The Army re-examined at least 170 diplomas from Roseland and determined that only 49 recruits had ever attended classes there. Roseland Principal Juanita Haskins denied the students received diplomas without enrolling, saying the students were in independent study and did not attend classes.
