Review:

"The author presents a clear and penetrating analysis of the elements involved in accountability relationships and the conditions under which obligations of moral and legal accountability become valid and effective. The principles which evolve from this analysis are applied to the belief that student achievement can be improved by holding teachers more accountable for student performance."
-"Philosopher's Index
"In this philosophic inquiry' into the meaning of accountability in humanity's most complex endeavor, education, Wagner avoids simplistic answers while exploring a cluster of intervening variables that impinge on the major issues of accountability. . . . Highly recommended . .."
-"Choice
