Words can be understood as systems or categories that promote meanings relating to social realities and contribute to their formation. This is particularly evident in the case of certain concepts or constructs that are especially relevant to precise instances and contexts, like accountability. The use of this term in the field of education conceals the symbolic disputes that underlie its meanings and the systems that give rise to its existence. This article reflects on the meanings of accountability in educational discourse and policies, and on their pedagogical effects. Similarly, their acceptance and naturalisation within the field of education are examined herein.
