The Political Construction of Accountability: When Rhetoric Meets Reality.
Fusarelli, Lance D.
Education and Urban Society, v33 n2 p157-69 Feb 2001
Asserts that accountability in charter schools is largely a political issue and not a technical, instrumental question as the rhetoric suggests. Drawing on Texas student performance data and interviews with key state policymakers, the paper concludes that viewing accountability in charter schools as a technical issue ignores the larger political considerations driving the movement.
