An incoming Kansas high school principal has given her resignation after inconsistencies found in her credentials.

But you'll never guess who made the discovery.

This story that has the whole town talking after some good old fashioned investigative work by some journalism students at Pittsburg High School found the discrepancies.

Students who write for the campus newspaper questioned the validity of Amy Robertson's master's and doctorate degrees from Corllins University.

U.S. Department of Education officials confirmed they could find no evidence of a Corllins University in operation.

Once exposed Robertson gave her resignation and now the district said they will make changes in the screening process.
