Broader, Bolder Accountability: Meaningful School Improvement in the Post-NCLB Era
Thursday, June 25, 2009
With widespread recognition that No Child Left Behind is fatally flawed, what will replace it? How can schools be held accountable for raising overall achievement and narrowing the achievement gap, without relying excessively on standardized tests which distort curricula and undermine schools' efforts to develop students' breadth and depth of knowledge?
President Obama has called for a new accountability system that does not rely solely on standardized testing, yet his administration has not explained how it hopes to design such a system. A committee of the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education campaign has been working on developing new accountability design elements and will release its report, School Accountability, A Broader, Bolder Approach: Report of the Accountability Committee of the Broader, Bolder Approach to Education Campaign at this event.
Tom Payzant, a professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the former superintendent of schools in Boston and San Diego, and an assistant secretary of education in the Clinton administration.
Christopher Cross, the former president of the Council for Better Education, and an assistant secretary of education in the George H.W. Bush administration.
