Building a True Accountability System
When it comes to providing true accountability for our nation’s public schools, John Tanner makes a compelling case that our nation’s current testing system isn’t working. Yesterday, the author of The Pitfalls of Reform: Its Incompatibility with Actual Improvement shared his research on student testing with 60 school and community leaders during a day-long symposium at the Educational Service Center of Northeast Ohio. Tanner, however, he didn’t stop there. He also explained that he is working with educational leaders in Texas to create an accountability system that does work. The symposium was sponsored by the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network which is working to provide Ohio’s citizens with a stronger voice in shaping statewide education policy.
