Accountability: Towards Reconstructing a "Politically Incorrect" Policy Issue.
Macpherson, R. J. S.
Educational Management & Administration, v24 n2 p139-50 Apr 1996
Accountability has become a politically incorrect issue because governments have encountered the limitations of simplistic market thinking while pressures for intervention in education have waned. However, accepting responsibility in education implies public accountability, which in turn requires formative evaluation, educative reporting relationships, politically sensitive planning, and improvement-oriented policies.
