Stanley Colvin, a deputy ..., 26 Sept 2012 [cached]
Stanley Colvin, a deputy assistant secretary for the State Department involved in exchange programs, wrote a highly critical email on Sept. 1, 2010, that referenced the Maryland case.
"Given the attempt to fabricate documents and its failure to secure a school placement, and other regulatory violations and lax business practices, my staff no longer considers PIE to be a reputable organization with whom the department should be doing business," Colvin told other State Department officials in the email.

The eight cases involve Education First Foundation for Foreign Study and its Fayetteville coordinators, Gerald D. and Sherry A. Drummond, said Stanley Colvin, director of the State Department's office of exchange coordination and designation.
The others attended schools in Northwest Arkansas but now live in Camden or Kentucky, Colvin said.
The complaints center on the nonprofit firm's failure to find appropriate homes for some students before they arrive, as well as on how and where the Drummonds place the students.
"This is sloppy work," Colvin said of the foundation's operation in Arkansas.
The State Department is investigating whether Cambridge, Mass.-based Education First, better known as EF Foundation, violated a federal regulation by allowing some students to live in the Drummond home without assigning another EF employee as a supervisor, Colvin said.
Federal regulations require foreign-exchange companies to "ensure that no organizational representative act as both host family and area supervisor for any exchange student participant."
"If there was an emergency and she had to remove a child from a home and keep the student for a one-night kind of thing, that's not a violation," Colvin said.
Colvin said he's also looking into complaints that foreign-exchange students sat at tables at the Fayetteville Farmer's Market and in front of a Wal-Mart trying to convince shoppers to allow other students into their homes.
"It's not appropriate, but it's not a violation of the law," Colvin said.
Around 30, 000 exchange students come to America annually, said Colvin of the State Department's exchange coordination office, adding the State Department investigates about 200 complaints each year. About 20 percent involve students brought to the United States by EF Foundation, Colvin said.
As part of its investigation in Arkansas, Colvin said the State Department could reprimand the company and require it to write a corrective-action plan to ensure it doesn't violate federal regulations.
A more severe penalty could involve shutting down the corporation or limiting how many students it can bring to the United States.
Colvin sent a letter Thursday to the EF Foundation describing five media accounts and complaints last week regarding the organization. "This is not a pretty picture," he concluded in the letter.
