Race to the Top Mandates Impossible to Implement – The Huffington Post

Here in Florida, RTTT is known as SB6/SB736 … It is an unfunded mandate:
It requires testing four times a year at a ridiculous cost, but provides no money to local districts to develop or validate tests.

It also promises merit pay in trade for teacher continuing contracts, but provides no funds for merit pay.

And, worse, it requires states to remove the cap off charter schools.

It sets up failure and privatization at the same time.

No wonder corporate America loves it.


Florida says Keep Public Schools Public

Save our Schools

Wear Red for Ed
Stop Race to the Top
