Who's Afraid of Educational Accountability? (A Representative Review of the Literature).
Browder, Lesley H., Jr.
The work presented in this monograph is the author's own attempt to piece together a representative review of the literature on educational accountability; this attempt admittedly overlooks many works, does not always offer "the best" works (simply representative ones), and is patterned after the author's own observations of what is important and what is not--plainly a matter of individual judgment. The plan for this literature review is to offer (1) an overview of accountability, 1974; (2) a review of definitions and concepts; (3) a look at expressions of the accountability concept applied to public education; (4) an overview of accountability models; and (5) some continuing issues and concluding remarks. A list of references (not to be regarded as a definitive bibliography) is offered at the end. (Author/DW)
