“Saving Face (sociological concept) an idiom for one's honor or prestige”
Sometimes we so want to “save face” in education that we do or say dumb things.
Case in point:
“Letters Praising Corinthian Came From Corinthian”
“At least nine letters sent to the Education Department and Congress, allegedly from business owners who had hired Corinthian Colleges graduates and praising the for-profit chain, were actually written by Corinthian employees, The Orange County Register reported. The letters were part of a lobbying campaign against new rules proposed by the Obama administration. A Corinthian spokesman said that there had been no intent to deceive and that the employees made a mistake. He said that the record would be corrected.”

When you get caught, you lose even more face, so just do not do it!
