How To Achieve Accountability in the Public Schools. Fastback Series, No. 14.
Dyer, Henry S.
Recognizing that accountability encompasses a number of distinct though closely interwoven elements, the author develops an overall perspective on educational accountability by examining four main aspects -- accountability for cash, accountability for things, accountability for deeds, and accountability for results. Central to the report is the author's discussion of the pervasive problem of providing the flow of information necessary to keep the public adequately informed and school systems adequately responsive to the needs of students and society. In conclusion, the author examines the role of the teacher as the person with whom any effort to make educational accountability workable must begin and end. (Author/JF)
