The Public's Understanding and Attitudes Toward Educational Accountability. The Report of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
Porter, John W.
This publication presents the results of a statewide study of the meaning, purpose, and methods of educational accountability that was conducted in the state of Michigan in 1974. Part 1 of the report examines the results of a public opinion survey designed to determine how Michigan residents and Michigan public school teachers perceive the concept of educational accountability and how they feel increased accountability may be achieved. Part 2 is a report prepared by the Educational Accountability Hearings Panel that summarizes the views expressed by Michigan citizens during the course of 13 public hearings on educational accountability. Part 3 presents the findings and conclusions of the Michigan Superintendent of Public Instruction, based on his review of the data from the public opinion survey and public hearings. A variety of accountability proposals offered by different organizations and individuals during the public hearings are presented in the appendix. (Author/JG)
