How do employers verify a job candidate's education level?
Suppose a job candidate claims he has a high school diploma on a job application. How does the candidate's potental employer verify that? Does the employer have to reveal their name to the high school in order for the school to confirm that the job candidate graduated from high school?

Either they ask you to provide a copy of the diploma for verification, or they can easily contact the school's registrar for verification of graduation.

Usually the High School will keep a record of the qualifications for all of the students who attend. I know that Universities can go back at least 20 - 30 years with these records

Call the high school you listed. They won't hire you if they find out you lied about anything on an application. Or they can fire you if they find out later.
