Accountability for What?
Knowles, Rex; Knowles; Trudy
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n5 p390-92 Jan 2001
Our emphasis on accountability overlooks children's differences. Half of all individuals who take a norm-referenced test will be below average. Should such students be pushed, mauled, and remediated or squeezed into a common learning mold? Holding teachers accountable for humane treatment of "whole children" is a worthier pursuit. (MLH)
