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.

The Business Rountable Supports the No Child Left Behind Legislation

ISSUE: No Child Left Behind

The No Child Left Behind Act, signed into law in January 2002, provides new accountability measures and resources to help raise student achievement in reading and mathematics. Business Roundtable strongly supported passage of the legislation and is now actively working with states on implementation. The No Child Left Behind Act calls for a closer connection between investments in education and accountability for improving student achievement. It includes annual testing to make sure all students are competent in core subjects and holds schools accountable for helping all groups of students to be proficient in reading and math by the 2013-14 school year. The law focuses on improving the quality of teaching, helping all children learn to read by the third grade, reporting student performance results on a regular basis, assisting schools where student achievement is low, and providing choices for parents if their children's schools do not improve. The business community has a vital role to play in efforts to implement the law successfully.
