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.

Throughout the US, School Districts Fail to Prepare Students or Their Parents For Terrorist Attacks
A new study by America Prepared Campaign surveyed 20 of the largest school districts in America and found that many did not implement policies that protect students in the event of a terrorist attack. "During the school day, governments - accountable public officials - are responsible for the safety of our children. Their work is not voluntary." American Prepared Campaign
          
The America Prepared Campaign creates and disseminates messages aimed at encouraging Americans to take simple steps to lessen the damage to them and their families that might come from another terrorist attack. A survey of 20 of the largest school districts in America found many- too many - SDs are not implementing appropriate measures to assure that children and their parents know what to do if there is a terrorist attack.

"...terrorism preparedness in schools is the one area where the cause has much less to do with citizens voluntarily taking responsibility for themselves and their children than it has to do with the government - in this case, our local governments and their school systems - doing its job. During the school day, governments - accountable public officials - are responsible for the safety of our children. Their work is not voluntary."

"...Especially in light of the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission, it benefits none of us if we mince words about how the nation's school officials are fulfilling, or not fulfilling, their responsibility to protect our
children from another terrorist attack. Those who are doing well deserve high praise and should have
their work held up as a model. Those who are failing should be embarrassed into improving, and as the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission made clear, embarrassed out of claiming a lack of resources or
time or other priorities as excuses for not acting."
