I wonder how the portfolios, performances, and exhibitions---the kinds of accountability tools the leading education reformers tell us we should be using---compare between these types of schools?
But we don't know, since most schools don't use these kinds of measures even though they best support innovative, inspiring teaching and engaged, deeply understood learning.
Until we start using the best measures of accountability to augment that the inferior standardized, abstract, test score, claims about which types of school are better are on unscientific grounding.


I think you identified two key elements. First we do not have real meaningful measures. Secondly, when we do measure it is for the purpose of humiliating and condemning, not making improvements.
