Accountability and the Struggle over What Counts.
Theobald, Paul; Mills, Ed
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n6 p462-66 Feb 1995
Discusses issues defining the boundaries of the current accountability debate, focusing on the historical struggle between the ideas of philosopher John Dewey and psychologist Edward Thorndike. In the Thorndike camp, corporate America wants educators to continue to sort, select, and label children, aided by standardized testing. The "postmodernist" Deweyan forces, committed to democracy, community, and holistic instruction, may win the struggle to reshape American education. (MLH)
