Job Corps Fraud Blog

Nationwide mismanagement of Job Corps calls for action!

Tongue Point Job Corps Center Accredited Through Northwest Association of Accredited Schools or…

National Academy of American Scholars?

This sensational article claims that certain school departments have been falsely claiming to be NAAS (Northwest Association of Accredited Schools) certified, but the NAAS trademark has already been copyrighted with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office as belonging to the National Academy of American Scholars. Thus making the schools’ claims illegal. The release posted May 17, 2010, talks about espionage, fraud, terrorists and more… including Tongue Point Job Corps Center, in Astoria, Oregon.

Some excerpts:

“The education departments from the states of Idaho, Utah, Montana, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, and Nevada are suspected of using scarce tax dollars to promote a private business (Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc.) without having first secured a majority voter referendum, or even a public hearing. Illicit partnerships and bribes typically fuel low accreditation standards, consumer fraud, Diploma Mills, and Accreditation scams.”

“Desperate schools and organizations that falsely and illegally claim to have been ‘NAAS’ accredited were in fact sold a scheme of low, incompetent, and inferior standards that were set and defined by an organization whose own standards, ethics, and integrity are so low that it does not accept basic U.S. federal laws, and neither does their accrediting agency adhere to a basic code of corporate ethics…”

“Federal records suggest that their business model, amongst other things, includes both a private partnership with Communist Russia (thus a satellite base of feeder ‘NAAS’ schools in Russia), and a public partnership with an American-based entity that is suspected of violating federal laws.”

The article certainly has shock value but I question whether the schools involved have terrorist thoughts on their mind, might their motive only be simple deception and the use of poor judgement?

Tongue Point Job Corps Center is operated by Management and Training corporation (MTC).

More Federal Contractor fraudulent practices

In addition to overseeing Job Corps Centers, Management and Training Corporation (MTC) also has contracts with the Federal Government to run “fee for service” prisons.

The following is a link to a copy of a letter Project on Government Oversight (POGO) sent to MTC’s corporate office in order to verify the amount of money MTC  has had to pay for legal settlements.  Read letter here:

This amount is only the tip of the iceberg and does not include the massive fines MTC has had to repay the government for manipulation of its Job Corps numbers in order to inflate center performance.  All of that information is contained in yearly Office of the Inspector General reports.

I worked at Kittrell Job Center when it was owned by MTC and experienced numbers inflation first-hand. I was required to attend two-hour daily “retention meetings”  this is where management moved students around like pieces on a chess board in order to enhance the numbers and reflect the center in the best light.

The government continues to award MTC contracts year after year. Right now MTC operates:
