Description - The New Accountability by Martin Carnoy
When it comes to the issue of US education reform, hopeful US politicians, liberal and conservative alike, have long touted the promises of 'standards-based accountability'. But do accountability-based reforms actually work? What happens when they encounter the formidable challenge of the comprehensive high school? The New Accountability explores the current wave of assessment-based accountability reforms at the high school level in the US.
