Want to know how accountable your system is?
The more authentic accountability there is in a system, the less bullshit there will be. If everyone plays their appropriate role, each player will absorb as much of the bullshit as possible, leaving little to none of the bullshit to trickle down.
So if you want to assess the accountability of your operation, follow the trickle down effect all the way down to the bottom where your primary client usually awaits.
In school, these are the students, and if they have to put up with little to no bullshit, then you know the system is appropriately accountable.
But if your students are struggling to sift through swaths of bullshit, then you know someone, somewhere dropped the accountability ball.
