Letter below sent to Dr. Erika Torres on 6/2/21:
Hello Dr. Torres,
The president, Carliss McGhee, of both the Inglewood School Board and the Inglewood Education foundation is a fraud. She does not have a Phd. We have copies of her transcripts from Santa Barbara Graduate Institute that were edited to include a Masters and Phdc (Phd. candidate). The original transcript that we have says, “Degree: None”. She informed us that she never completed her dissertation. She knows that she does not have a Phd. However, both the Inglewood School Board and the Inglewood Education Foundation websites list her as Phd. Also, she is known at large in the community as Dr. McGhee.
We all know the ongoing troubles of the school district. In order for the schools to move forward successfully, the highest level of honesty and integrity must prevail. To see children looking up to and addressing Carliss McGhee as “doctor” when she is not, is disheartening. The example she sets forth is to cheat and scam your way through life and into positions of power.
We ask that you clarify where Carliss McGhee received her Phd.
We ask that you request and obtain official transcripts from Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and/or the college where she received said degree.
We ask that you do not allow Carliss McGhee to provide you with transcripts.
We ask that you only accept transcripts that are provided directly from the official holder of records for Santa Barbara Graduate Institute and/or the college where she received said degree.
We ask that the financial records of the Inglewood Education Foundations be audited and released to the public.
See request from IUSD alum:
We inform you that Santa Barbara Graduate Institute closed in 2012. The Chicago School of Professional Psychology is the holder of records for Santa Barbara Graduate Institute.
The following webpage states that transcripts for Santa Barbara Graduate Institute can be obtained through the Chicago School of Professional Psychology:
Third party transcripts can be requested through:
In order to get a third party transcript, Carliss McGhee, will have to complete a learner consent form. We have her student ID number and any other information that she may not know. She can contact us directly via email to get information needed so that the learner consent form is completed and that you are able to obtain records. After she gives you consent, you will be able to get transcripts sent directly to you.
We ask that when a determination is found a proper example is set forth to discourage others from doing the same.
We ask that all board members are vetted and documentation of claimed degrees are obtained directly from those in oversight positions.
Please stop the fraud in our district!!!
