The dilemmas of accountability (2009)

Exploring the issues of accountability in adult literacy through three case studies

The aim of this project was to compile what has been learned about building accountability systems in adult literacy in British Columbia, Ontario and Scotland.

Wherever possible the findings reflect all three jurisdictions and focus on common concerns.
