Educational Accountability--Good News and Bad News. Oregon School Study Council Bulletin Vol. 19, No. 4.
Frazier, Calvin M.
The author begins his discussion of accountability with an examination of its development, including its historical origins and the role of the federal government. The evolution of accountability programs at the state level is also considered. Included are brief indications of the directions taken by Pennsylvania, Florida, Colorado, and Michigan. Before concluding with a discussion of the continuing challenge accountability presents to educators, the author takes a brief look at the negative reactions accountability has elicited from legislators, administrators, teachers, and students.
