My question for discussion is in the case of public schools, what does it mean to be a student enrolled in a “Level One” public school vs. being a student enrolled in a "Level Two, Three, Four or Five" school? Do accountability labels assigned by any state's Board of Education put students in a particular mindset for success? If so, what are the unintended consequences in the accountability movement?

Hi Michelle,
i don't know if there's anything that's been done on this, but it sounds like a really interesting idea for somebody looking for a research study to do!
