The Demand for Accountability: Can Society Exercise Control Over Education?
Broudy, Harry S.
Education and Urban Society, 9, 2, 235-50, Feb 77
Argues that unless there is a general agreement in society about the purpose of education, until the school can control the factors that determine success, and until the school can ask all children to enter a common cultural tradition, the school can only respond to the demand for accountability by pleading impotence or by shifting it to those who are demanding it.
