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.

Why Do Principals Who Abuse Kids Get Hired? Or, Why Do Principals Get to Stay in Their Jobs?

by Erika Martinez
NY POST, August 4, 2004

August 4, 2004 -- An assistant high-school principal - arrested last week for molesting two teenage boys - has been busted again for abusing and harassing another teen, authorities said.
Dr. Juan Taveras of Manhattan's Norman Thomas HS, was hit with new charges when he showed up yesterday at Manhattan Criminal Court for an appearance related to his previous arrest, law-enforcement officials said.

Authorities say that while Taveras was out on $10,000 bail for sexually abusing two 17-year-olds, he allegedly telephoned a third victim and warned him not to go to the police.

But the 15-year-old told cops about his own alleged abuse.

The teens' charges "are complete fabrications against a strict principal," said Taveras' lawyer, Michael Wilens.

Taveras is charged with eight counts of sex abuse, eight counts of forcible touching, two counts of witness tampering and endangering the welfare of a minor.
