Utterly Meaningless » Blog Archive » GADFLY ON ACCOUNTABILITY

    Filed at 5:10 pm under by dcobranchi

    There are two good pieces (pro and con) on how the DC vouchers need to address accountability. The first is basically anti-voucher but not vituperatively so. Chester Finn’s response seems reasoned and workable. Given the political realities, voucher-accepting private schools are probably going to have to accept some sort of accountability system. Finn suggests that the schools submit test scores (at least for the kids there on vouchers) to enable comparisons to kids still in the g-schools. Finn claims that many private schools already administer the Terra Nova nationally normed test. It should be possible to compare results from this test with the g-school-administered SAT-9.
