Mutual Accountability and Adult Literacy. Research Brief
Houston-Knopff, Robin
Centre for Literacy of Quebec
Accountability plays a key role in the field of adult literacy. Indeed, practitioners often juggle multiple accountabilities--to funders, taxpayers, learners, boards of directors, the community, and their profession. These may be in tension with each other, as when teachers' accountability to learners conflicts with their accountability to deliver what funders want. The focus in this brief is on the "mutual accountability" between the funder and the provider of a literacy service. (Contains 28 sources.)
