Accountability from the Point of View of a Chief Administrator.
Essex, Martin W.
The responsibility of the pupil personnel director in educational accountability is discussed. Although significant improvements have been made in almost every area of education in recent years, there is a sense of crisis, anger, and anxiety. The public is demanding new forms of accountability. Norms on standardized achievement tests have ceased to satisfy a sizeable segment of U.S. citizens. Questions that the public may be asking are: (1) Can you put the counselor on the firing line as is the classroom teacher and the front line administrator? Does he maintain an efficient organization, a daily schedule of interviews?; (2) Does the psychologist write voluminous case reports or does he work with people?; (3) Do you spend most of your time with the problem children and little time with the normal children? and (4) Can testing be directed to positive and immediate diagnostic purposes?
