ABSTRACT
The article highlights the crusade for educational accountability in the U.S. Accountability can be defined in educational perspective as a policy of holding schools and teachers accountable for the academic progress of students by linking such progress with funding for salaries and maintenance. It is said that the practical purposes behind the definition of accountability have led students to learn more from standardized tests rather than from standards-based curriculum.
