Tracking In The Era of High Stakes State Accountability Reform: Case Studies Of Classroom Instruction In North Carolina
Considerable controversy surrounds the issue of whether high-stakes statewide accountability programs have led to more equitable educational opportunities for all students.The central question is: What is the nature of curriculum and instruction for different groups of students in the new school reform context of high-stakes, statewide accountability programs, and what are the implications for equity?
