Educational Accountability with a Human Face
Educators remind us that the richness of human relationships and the development of the full range of human capacities are fundamental to the educational experience of students – elements which not only tend to defy standardization but can be eroded by it. In this publication, we attempt to recast accountability with this in mind. It highlights quality classroom assessment, broadly shared responsibility, teacher professionalism and autonomy, and the need to situate accountability within the multiple goals of a strong public education system as components of genuine accountability.
