Education Stimulus Watch: Assessing Race to the Top

Education Stimulus Watch: Assessing Race to the Top
Source: American Enterprise Institute

During President Obama's first two years in office, the administration's signature education initiative has been the Race to the Top fund, which AEI has been closely monitoring in a series of special Education Stimulus Watch reports on the K12 education implications of the program. In the latest report in the series, with a foreword by AEI's director of education policy studies Rick Hess, Paul Manna of the College of William and Mary analyzes the program's strengths and weaknesses to determine what it can teach future designers and implementers of federal education policy, especially regarding policies involving competitive grants.

Manna's suggestions range from taking back funds from winners who do not deliver on their promises and giving the recaptured funds to other states, to designing competitions with more focused goals, and creating state applications that are easy to complete and evaluate.
