“Who is Accountable?” is a documentary that examines the root causes of why the academic achievement gap between white children and minority children has not narrowed since the 1954 Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision.

“Who is Accountable?” further examines the relationship between teacher qualifications and academic performance, drop out rates and college readiness of high school students. Why are there disproportionate percentages of 1st and 2nd year teachers, non-credentialed teachers and non-performing teachers in inner city public schools compared to their counterpart suburban schools? What impact does the disparity in teacher quality have on the quality of instruction? These and many more issues are revealed in this educational documentary called “Who is Accountable?”
