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.

Winners of the "A":

Johnnie Mae Allen
David Possner
Dee Alpert
Joan Klingsberg

Dear Mr. Klein, how do these teachers get hired? Are you providing appropriate oversight of the New York City public school system?
          
NEW YORK CITY
Five teachers accused of sex with students

NEW YORK (AP) - Five teachers have been accused of having sexual contact with their students since last week, spurring the city's top education official to announce a crackdown on sex in schools.
The latest case was announced Wednesday as Joanna Hernandez, 27, was arraigned on charges of sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a minor for allegedly kissing a 15-year-old student. Hernandez pleaded not guilty.

Two women teachers at the High School for Health Professions and Human Services in Manhattan were removed from their classrooms last week. Rhianna Ellis, 25, has been accused of having a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old student, while Samantha Solomon, 29, allegedly had sex with a 17-year-old student.

Two men teachers also faced charges. Jermaine Reid, 27, was accused of having sexual relations with two female students, ages 16 and 18, at two different schools. Joseph Morales, 28, was charged with public lewdness and endangering the welfare of minors after he allegedly exposed himself repeatedly on Staten Island.

Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein, in an e-mail message sent to principals Tuesday, said he would "use all means at my disposal" to remove sex offenders from schools and prosecute them.
