  1. I’m not anti-accountability or testing. Really and truly, I’m not. But at what point, pray tell, does accountability cease to be on the institution and teachers and transfer to the student?

    Holding colleges accountable for student learning makes no more sense to me than holding grocery stores accountable for nutrition.

  2. Amen.
