I can't really picture anyone, who cares about whether or
not a person has a diploma, caring one way or another
whether a school that the person attended endorsed its own
methods. Presumably, any/every institution endorses itself
and its own methodology.

If you think that an internal accreditation of the school is
valuable, why not just do _that_ and call it accreditation,
rather than disguising it as a diploma?
