Accountability and the public purposes of education /

by Reid, Alan.

Publisher: Australian Education Union 2009Description: 7 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: "This paper frames MySchool as an accountability strategy in the context of the purposes of education. The presenters reason for doing this is because the debate about MySchool has largely been conducted in the absence of an articulated set of reference points - that is claims and counter claims about the importance or the consequences of MySchool are often made in a vacuum. That they are self evidently good or bad. The paper argues that the reference point against which such judgments should be made is the public purposes of education. Professor Alan Reid is Emeritus Professor, Division of Education, Arts and Social Sciences, School of Education, University of South Australia. This paper was presented at a national symposium in Sydney, entitled, Advice for Ministers and ACARA on NAPLAN, the use of Student Data, My School and League Tables" APO WeeklyAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Moral responsibility and the boundaries of community : power and accountability from a pragmatic point of view /

by Smiley, Marion.

Publisher: Chicago, IL University of Chicago Press 1992Description: x, 286 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 273-284) and index.Summary: The question of responsibility plays a critical role not only in our attempts to resolve social and political problems, but in our very conceptions of what those problems are. Who, for example, is to blame for apartheid in South Africa? Is the South African government responsible? What about multinational corporations that do business there? Will uncovering the "true facts of the matter" lead us to the right answer? In an argument both compelling and provocative, Marion Smiley demonstrates how attributions of blame--far from being based on an objective process of factual discovery--are instead judgments that we ourselves make on the basis of our own political and social points of view. She argues that our conception of responsibility is a singularly modern one that locates the source of blameworthiness in an individual's free will. After exploring the flaws inherent in this conception, she shows how our judgments of blame evolve out of our configuration of social roles, our conception of communal boundaries, and the distribution of power upon which both are based. The great strength of Smiley's study lies in the way in which it brings together both rigorous philosophical analysis and an appreciation of the dynamics of social and political practice. By developing a pragmatic conception of moral responsibility, this work illustrates both how moral philosophy can enhance our understanding of social and political practices and why reflection on these practices is necessary to the reconstruction of our moral concepts. ; Contents: 1.
