I'm not against accountability in education. I don't want to "leave children behind". While I have a strong opinion on what accountability means, this post isn't intended to travel down that road. But to be clear, my understanding of "accountability" has no relationship to the quantified results of standardized tests mandated by authorities outside of a school (e.g. district, city, state, country).
Accountability can take many genuine forms (e.g. parent involvement). Kimberly Moritz's suggestion is certainly one that fits my understanding of "being held accountable".
