Ramping Up Race to the Top
With the prospect of tough budget fights ahead, no government program will be spared close scrutiny. But one program that deserves continued support is the Obama Administration’s signature education program, Race to the Top. In just two years, the program jump started the education reform debate, leading to major reforms in states across the country. Race to the Top has the potential to continue the momentum in education reform, but in order to win the future, we must continue to invest in successful education initiatives like Race to the Top.
In the first education paper from Third Way’s Domestic Policy Program, Third Way’s Tess Stovall and Deirdre Dolan look at the progress made under the first two years of Race to the Top and highlight the program’s future potential.
