Roles of the Participants in Educational Accountability.
Wilsey, Carl E.; Schroeder, Glenn B.
This paper attempts to help professionals and laymen who have responsibility for, or a vital interest in, improving the accountability of the public schools to better understand the participants and their roles in the operation of accountability programs. The report is designed to stimulate analysis and discussion of roles as they apply to particular State and local education agency situations. The authors describe in some detail one approach to improved accountability in education, that of the Planning-Programing-Budgeting System (PPBS). Following the description of a model accountability program, the authors identify the roles that seem to be most appropriate, attempt to highlight areas of conflict or disagreement, and suggest ways in which conflicts could be resolved in the future. A selected bibliography is included. (Author)
