The E-Accountability Foundation announces the

'A for Accountability' Award

to those who are willing to whistleblow unjust, misleading, or false actions and claims of the politico-educational complex in order to bring about educational reform in favor of children of all races, intellectual ability and economic status. They ask questions that need to be asked, such as "where is the money?" and "Why does it have to be this way?" and they never give up. These people have withstood adversity and have held those who seem not to believe in honesty, integrity and compassion accountable for their actions. The winners of our "A" work to expose wrong-doing not for themselves, but for others - total strangers - for the "Greater Good"of the community and, by their actions, exemplify courage and self-less passion. They are parent advocates. We salute you.

Couldn't DOE Employees With Private Cars and Sirens Have Funded Some New Bathrooms Instead?

Many of the City's public schools' bathrooms are unusable say parents, and kids are leaving the building to go to the bathroom elsewhere or holding it until later, after school.

At the same time, 14 Department of Education officials not only have private city-owned cars to take them to work at Tweed but also have police sirens and emergency lights to get them there 10 minutes faster, as Deputy Mayor Carol Robles-Roman tried to do in February. A CBS camera crew caught her using her siren to get to New York City from her home in Riverdale, and then Mayor Bloomberg yanked the "perk" from 255 city "officials". 14 DOE "officials" including the Chancellor evidently felt it was their right to have this perk.

Why didn't these DOE employees donate the money from their cars/chauffeurs/sirens, and 'adopt' a bathroom?
