Lecture by David Figlio: Intended and Unintended Consequences of School Accountability
4:00 PM -  5:30 PM
David Figlio, Orrington Lunt Professor of Education, Social Policy and Economics at Northwestern University
David Figlio

I focus on how the design of school accountability system can affect these various consequences, and offer some lessons that states can take to heart as they plan their No Child Left Behind Act waiver proposals this winter.
