First published in 1986, Education Accountability is a critique of writing on accountability and evaluation with respect to education and its various stakeholders. The author applies frameworks drawn from the theory of knowledge, social psychology and social policy, demonstrating how different assumptions about the nature of schooling, curriculum control and development can give rise to various forms of political control, of which education accountability is a special and important case. This sharp book will be valuable reading for all advanced students of education, whether interested in curriculum or educational administration, as well as to students of political science, social policy and evaluation studies, teacher trainers, administrators and educational researchers.
