What School Boards Should Know About Performance Contracting.
Chandler, B. J.
This discussion of the pros and cons of educational accountability and performance contracting comments on the educational and historical context of performance contracting and indicates some directions performance contracting will take. The author warns that since performance contracting is a new tool it must be used cautiously and with skill by experts. Abuses, misunderstandings, exaggerated claims, sloppy and undependable evaluating, and unethical practices, could result in disrepute for performance contracting, with a resulting repudiation by the American people. However, the author feels that with patient, unselfish, prudent, honest, and intelligent testing and experimentation, a highly effective tool for education may be developed and used.
