The Accountability Issue

"At the end of the day we are accountable to ourselves-our success is a result of what we do."  
~Catherine Pulsifer

As I sat in a session at #edcampcentralNE last week the topic of teacher accountability came up. Technology integration was the issue being discussed and a teacher in the room expressed something to the effect that "unless teachers are held accountable by administrators, the integration isn't going to happen."  I hear it time and time again, and I keep asking myself the following questions:

  • Why should administrators have to hold teachers accountable?  
  • If we expect and preach accountability in our classrooms, shouldn't we as professionals be expected to be accountable as well?
