Education is currently at the forefront of the development and political agendas of most
countries around the globe. Each country is working to bring equitable and accessible education of high quality to its citizens. As far as the quality is concerned, the workable, however somewhat antiquated, model of determining education quality is the production–function model. Until recently, the process, which involves what is happening in schools and with teachers, becomes the most significant factor in producing high–performing students with the same available budget.
Alongside this, in the last few decades the term accountability appears frequently in policy discourse and research on education quality.
