Charter Schools and the Panoptic Effect of Accountability.
Opfer, V. Darleen
Education and Urban Society, v33 n2 p201-15 Feb 2001
Explores Georgia's charter school policy, arguing that pairing charter schools with accountability in policy discourse attempts to make more palatable a system that is increasingly controlled by the center. State accountability systems limit innovation by forcing everyone to work within system constraints. The centralizing effects of accountability in charter schools can negate the freedom and autonomy promised by its advocates. (SM)
