Overhauling Testing and Accountability with Monty Neill of FairTest
Monty Neill will present and lead a discussion in three parts: 1) what is wrong with current testing and accountability; 2) what are some educationally sound goals in these areas; and 3) action steps at local, state and federal levels to overcome the problems and win the goals.
Monty Neill, Ed.D., is currently Executive Director of the National Center for Fair & Open Testing (FairTest). He has led FairTest's work on testing in the public schools since 1987. He has initiated national and state coalitions of education, civil rights, religious and parent organizations to work toward fundamental change in the assessment of students and in accountability. Neill currently chairs the Forum on Educational Accountability, an alliance working to overhaul federal education law (the No Child Left Behind Act, in particular) based on the Joint Organizational Statement on NCLB, signed by nearly 150 national groups. Under his leadership, FairTest has worked on graduation tests and other high-stakes tests with organizations in many states.
