White House Report: Race to the Top Setting the Pace for Gains Across the Education System

Categories: Uncategorized

On March 25th, the White House released a report, Setting the Pace: Expanding Opportunity for America’s Students under Race to the Top(PDF). The report includes the results to date of the Administration’s investments in states via Race to the Top, and details several key findings.

Among the report’s key findings are:

  • States that received Race to the Top funds to reform their K-12 education systems serve 22 million students and 1.5 million teachers in more than 40,000 schools.
  • These states represent 45 percent of all students and a similar percentage of all low-income students. Some of the most encouraging signs of progress have come in states that have done the most to embrace the types of reforms called for in Race to the Top, including Tennessee, Hawaii and the District of Columbia.
  • All Race to the Top grantees have taken key steps toward focusing on college- and career-readiness for all students and supporting hard-working teachers and principals, including developing a number of new tools and resources, providing coaching for educators, and expanding options for students.
