Grading Education: Getting Accountability Right (Paperback)

Grading Education: Getting Accountability Right Cover Image
Special Order


Yes, we should hold public schools accountable, but policies like No Child Left Behind have narrowed the curriculum, misidentified both failing and successful schools, and established irresponsible expectations for what schools can accomplish. Grading Education describes a new kind of accountability plan for public education, one that relies on higher-quality testing, focuses on professional evaluation, and builds on capacities we already possess. This important resource defines the broad goals of education, beyond math and reading test scores, and reports on surveys to confirm public and governmental support for such goals.
