Claim: Imee Marcos fabricated her graduation from four different schools.
A graphic from the page ‘Stupid Ironies’ claims that senator Maria Imelda Josefa Remedios “Imee” Romualdez Marcos fake (sic) her educational credentials from four schools.
The four schools mentioned in the graphic were in Imee’s curriculum vitae, for the Philippine Congress.
These claims have already been fact-checked by credible media sources:
UP Law: UP Executive Vice President Teodoro Herbosa told Rappler in an e-mail that Marcos has no record of graduation nor honors with the UP Registrar’s office.
Princeton University: “Our records do not show that Ms. Marcos was awarded a degree,” said Michael Hotchkiss, Princeton University Deputy Spokesperson.
Asian Institute of Management: AIM never offered MA/MBA courses as opposed to the claim of Imee that she finished an MA in Management and Business Administration in the said institute.
Santa Catalina School (SCS) in Monterey, California: According to John Aimé, the SCS assistant head of school, Marcos indeed studied at the Santa Catalina School for a “brief period” in 1972. But she did not graduate. This means she also cannot be the valedictorian if she did not graduate. https://www.rappler.com/…/226319-imee-marcos-class…/
Despite all her lies, Imee Marcos never denied her falsifications and asks what is there to apologize about.
Why we fact-checked this: Although these claims aren’t new, the claims were revived and are being used by the senator without repercussions. These delusions of Imee Marcos give her a sense of contentment that she does not deserve.
