Standards-based education can sometimes put pressure on teachers to be sure they 'measure-up' to the expectations of state standards. How can teacher accountability have a positive and a negative influence on the classroom environment?
Well, a teacher IS accountable to the students. Every teacher should know beforehand what needs to be covered and should do that as a minimum. It's a positive thing for a teacher to prepare the students well. Simply teaching to a test is not really good!
