An alarming new study says students with criminal records could be sitting in every classroom at colleges and Universities.
A nationwide study by MyBackgroundCheck.com revealed that approximately one out of every 29 college students had some type of previous criminal record. An official who conducted the study says parents sending children off to colleges should closely view the background screening policies of those educational institutions.
The study excluded juvenile records, charges dismissed by prosecutors, and arrest information that did not have a disposition.
