Accountability in Education: A Primer for School Leaders. HSLA Monograph.
School leaders are increasingly coming under the gun of accountability, and this monograph is designed to help leaders think about, understand, and respond thoughtfully and effectively to the increasing demands for accountability in education. It provides a comprehensive and rather sophisticated set of concepts and insights into accountability that will assist them in working with staff, in building collaborative relationships with others within the department, and with external partners, and in contending with critics. The school principal, as the primary leader and chief executive officer of the school, bears the brunt of the responsibility to ensure that demands for school accountability--whether externally or internally generated--are adequately met. While this monograph is not a "how to" manual, it does offer a sound conceptual foundation for accountability from which school leaders should be able to produce the practical "how to's" of accountability.
