Book Title: Facing Accountability in Education: Democracy and Equity at Risk (Multicultural Education (Paper))
Publisher: Teachers College Press
Author: Christine E. Sleeter
In this authoritative volume, leading educators and scholars examine the current accountability movement and the extent to which it supports equity and democracy. They address how it was constructed, who it actually benefits, as well as how genuine progress can be made to close racial disparities in achievement. While the authors have different perspectives, they all share a commitment to improving education for all children, especially for those who have been historically underserved.
