School accountability in action

Again we find more evidence that school compliance systems are on the wrong track by focusing almost exclusively on high-stakes testing. Part of the purpose of schooling is teaching citizenship which includes social emotional learning (SEL). Not only should schools focus more on SEL, this should be part of the overall data picture used for compliance and improvement purposes. Although more in-depth coverage would be more helpful, it is good that the mainstream media is noticing our current compliance systems for public schools are lacking.
