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.
