Consider the bizarre conduct of Mr. David Hawkins. He is a long-time officer and employee of NACAC. He has been employed at the non-profit group for so long that one wonders whether or not he can get a job anywhere else. Despite being employed by a non-profit organization, Hawkins did not shy away from a chance to be quoted in a one-sided article that demeaned and insulted National Academy of American Scholars. </p>
Mr. Hawkins did not make a good faith attempt to first contact NAAS directly to express his alleged concerns or opinions about the viability, integrity, and business practices of National Academy of American Scholars. Instead, Hawkins betrayed his ethical responsibilities and appeared to violate IRS rules that prohibit non-profit organizationa from engaging in grandstanding political conduct.
The sorry Mr. Hawkins did not publicly disclose the fact that many NACAC members were engaging in massive student-loan fraud and/or unethical conduct soon to be announced by the New York Attorney General. Nor did Mr. Hawkins offer commentary about a pending investigation by the Associated Press about the massive number of teacher abuse cases that regularly occur in American schools. Neither did Mr. Hawkisn comment upon why NACAC has heretofore not chronicled and publicly listed the many cases of student-rapes-by-teachers, student molestations by teachers, and financial-aid crimes committed by members of NACAC on its public website. We ask David Hawkins why is so silient about issues that directly affect students?
