Trump Takes His Donors to Graduate School at Trump University

Just days before his 2017 inauguration, Donald Trump coughed up $25 million to settle allegations that he’d defrauded students at his defunct Trump University.

Moreland University, TEACH-NOW Graduate School of Education

Having spent a half century as a teacher, teacher educator, and a host of entrepreneurial (innovative) leadership roles involving research and reporting on the preparation and certification of teachers, our founder, Dr. Emily Feistritzer, decided that somebody needed to start over with the way teachers are prepared – go back to the drawing board, act like there had never been a teacher preparation program and create one that would prepare tomorrow’s teachers for tomorrow’s students in tomorrow’s learning world. We wanted to create a process that would “equip, enable and empower teachers to go into any learning environment anywhere in the world and be able to diagnose the learning situation and then be able to design and implement learning experiences to ensure that each student learned , grew and developed.” We wanted teachers to be “resource-rich problem-solvers” for the rest of their lives.
