holding teachers accountable is senseless

holding teachers accountable for their students’ test scores makes as much sense as holding me a music teacher accountable for

1. if any of my students have a not-very-good sense of time (teaching that is sometimes impossible, depending.)
2. if they decided not to practice what I tell them to each and every single lesson for years on end.
3. similar to 1, but their talent as well.

you can’t come to me, or to any teacher, and expect them to work magic.

you have to do the work and do a great deal of it for a long time.

aren’t going to?
