Do standardized tests measure teacher or school accountability?
I know a lot of teachers. Not one of them believes it is fair to base teacher or school accountability on standardized test scores. I recently read this article and I loved the author's quote which stated,
"Defining accountability in terms of a quantitative measure
- a number - is actually an elaborate hoax perpetrated by the leadership to avoid being accountable."
Do you agree with this statement? Why or why not?
