Viewpoint: Accountability should focus on individual students
Accountability is a good word. It means: be responsible, liable for one’s action. I am sure I have used this word many times — in fact, maybe too many times with my children and now with grandchildren. It is a word that provides some proof, evidence that we are responsible for our actions. It is a good word.
We ask for individuals to be accountable. We want our government to be accountable. We want all of our institutions to be accountable. This is good.
