Orienting Schools toward Equity: Subgroup Accountability Pressure and School-Level Responses
Garver, Rachel
Educational Forum, v81 n2 p160-174 2017
This article examines school-level responses to subgroup accountability pressure through an ethnographic case study of a school cited for failing to make adequate yearly progress for student subgroups. Concerns about the calculations and measures used to derive the citation and reservations about acting on accountability data delegitimized the citation and rendered the identified subgroups irrelevant to daily practice. Under district guidance, compliance with subgroup accountability was independent of the school's internal efforts to promote equity.
