ANDRADE, Eduardo de Carvalho. Alternativa de política educacional para o Brasil: School Accountability. Rev. Econ. Polit. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.4, pp.454-472. ISSN 0101-3157.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31572009000400009.

An alternative to the education policy in Brasil: School accountability. This paper examines the school accountability (SA) policies adopted in the US. Significant impacts on the quality of education occur when the SA incorporates a set of sanctions and rewards to schools based on their students' performance. In comparison with other policies, it is also more efficient. Potential problems of adopting the SA (bias toward cognitive ability, gaming and difficulty in measuring the school contribution) can be overcome. The analysis suggests that the SA should be considered as an alternative to improve the quality of education in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : school accountability; education; education policy; incentive schemes; student performance.
