Accountability in Education: 2017/18 – Meeting our Commitments

Sharing core norms and values
Posted Mar 13, 2018 | Global Education Monitoring Report, UNESCO

The term accountability draws meaning from context – its interaction with other words in the culture in which it plays a more or less central and often controversial role. People around the world, and the media in particular, describe education as in crisis. Various social, political, economic and cultural trends have shifted education policy towards a greater emphasis on accountability. In this Global Education Monitoring Report, UNESCO defines accountability as a process aimed at helping individuals or institutions meet their responsibilities and reach their goals. It suggests that problems characterized by a crisis narrative vary widely among countries, and calls on actors to provide an account of how they meet clearly defined responsibilities, based on a legal, political, social or moral justification.
