The current international discourse of national education systems includes a significant school accountability mechanisms and discourse. That broader pattern of accountability has a history which we explore in a weekend online workshop in June 2013. The workshop explores the relationships among individual national histories of accountability policy and discourse and broader questions of international trends and patterns. The workshop will include papers on the history of accountability in individual countries and on international patterns in school accountability.
Convenors: Christian Ydesen (Aalborg University) and Sherman Dorn (University of South Florida).
