(WHAS11) -- With high unemployment and a high drop-out rate, phony diplomas are popping up all over Kentucky.
 
State laws in Kentucky allow just about anyone to open a school and issue a diploma and there is very little oversight over these institutions.
 
We learned from college recruiters that students recently began showing up at colleges using bogus high school diplomas to attempt to enroll.
 
Many of these "diploma mills" even provide phony transcripts for the right price.
 
The institution that has been showing up most often in our area is "Jefferson High School."
 
While it may seem like a high school from Jefferson County, Jeffersontown or Jeffersonville, the institution is actually hundreds of miles away in the Carribean.
 
Find out what happens, when we enroll a dog in Jefferson High.
 
See the report, Monday night at 6.
