Teacher Accountability and the Causal Theory of Teaching.
Ericson, David P.; Ellett, Frederick S., Jr.
Educational Theory, v37 n3 p277-93 Sum 1987
This paper explores the notion that teaching necessarily involves the attempt to bring about learning, making the relationship between teaching and learning appear to be causal. A number of philosophical views are considered, a new conception is put forward, and policy issues surrounding teacher accountability are discussed. (MT)
