Defining Accountability

Good piece from Mitchell Robinson on Betsy Devos's lack of qualifications to be EdSec. The money quote:

No–Betsy has not been “singularly focused on accountability”. Let’s get something straight: accountability without meaningful assessment, instruction, and capacity building is merely punishment. Betsy has been singularly focused on punishment. That’s not an education strategy–that’s just punitive.

That is EXACTLY what conservatives mean when they speak of "accountability." Punishment.
