Boise State University drops phony 'NAAS' accrediting agency. With little prodding, Boise State University is to be commended for deleting all references to the misuse of the 'NAAS' mark on its website, and deleting the multiple false claims made by Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. If only the U.S. Attorney of Idaho, and the other agencies and universities that support Northwest, were as honorable, perhaps a series of NAAS media reports would not be necessary.
Since the U.S. Attorney of Idaho apparently is a person who cannot be trusted to enforce federal laws, and who is apparently incapable of protecting the citizens of that state, hundreds of Idaho citizens and thousands more have called upon National Academy of American Scholars (NAAS) to resolve marketplace confusion, investigate 'NAAS' accreditation scams, and to enforce the perception that U.S. federal laws actually mean something.
Many Idaho residents believe that the Idaho Dept. of Education is nothing more than a corrupt rubber-stamp alter-ego of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools. It is unclear to many Idaho residents whether or not Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is a branch of Idaho government. Judging from the commingling of assets and use of the Idaho government page, it is believed that the Idaho Dept. of Education is run by the same suspicious gang that is employed by Northwest Assocation of Accredited Schools. It is this incestuous relationship that the U.S. Attorney of Idaho may be trying to conceal and protect. Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is NOT a branch of any government.An argument can be made that Northwest Association of Accredited Schools is engaging in illegal conduct, and is deliberately attempting to confuse consumers about the origin of its phony 'NAAS' products and services.
