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
Harris Lirtzman
Hipolito Colon
Jim Calantjis

Why is Chancellor Klein Permitting Unhealthy Food in our School Cafeterias, and Poor Playgrounds to Exercise in?
We read about the terrible food in our public schools, and we want to know why Chancellor Klein is not doing something about it? Subj: Letter to the Editor Re: Naked Lunch Date: 3/9/2003 To: letters@nytimes.com To The Editor: Mr. Lee's piece on "Naked Lunch: School Children Grimace and Can't Bear It" [March 9] brings back many fond memories. I started a lunch club several years ago at a Manhattan elementary school and every monday in the cafeteria for one entire school year I saw the most unappealing, overly-cooked vegetables and undercooked meat I have ever seen. My 11 4th and 5th graders traded, bartered free homework help, anything as long as they did not have to eat that "food", if that's what it was. In fact, we sometimes had a contest to guess what was in the lunch, because the shape of the meat/vegetable, or whatever, was unrecognizable. As department of education officials dont see anything wrong with this food, why not ask the distributors to make a stop at the Tweed Courthouse before the meals are delivered to our children?
