David Possner, Assistant Principal at MS 226 in Queens, Wins the "A For Accountability Award" From The E-Accountability Foundation

David Possner wins the A For Accountability Award

David is an Assistant Principal at JHS 226 Virgil I. Grissom in Queens. He bravely stood up to speak against the Principal, Rushell White, in support of the excellent staff members who had been forced out of their jobs because of the discrimination, abuse, and hostile work environment created by Rushell White.

One of the most outrageous acts of Ms. White I think is the retroactive denial of bereavement days for David's grandmother's passing, which occurred in 2011. Rushell White altered David's attendance record for 2015 to make up for the bereavement days she had given him four years earlier. That's what hatred and discrimination looks like.

David has worked at MS 226 since 2005, and several teachers believe him to be the most caring and excellent AP they have ever worked with. Before becoming an AP, David was a teacher for 5-6 years, and worked on the Staten Island Community Board Education Committee to improve the schools of Staten Island.

He risked his own career, and his emotional well-being to say to the world via New York City newspapers and Editor Betsy Combier, that no public school should be managed by fear and threats.

In or about 2002, I started a 501(c) 3 called the E-Accountability Foundation, to help people who became whistleblowers for corruption and were retaliated against.

My logo for and the trademarked "A For Accountability" at the top of this post stand for bravery not often seen in the general population. As my website explains,

"The E-Accountability Foundation announces the A For Accountability Award which is given 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."

We continue to help and support David as he proceeds through the Court system, making waves through an education system that no longer cares about kids.
