Obama: Race To The Top Pros and Cons?
President Barack Obama mentioned Race to the Top (R2T) during his State of the Union Address. His plan is for this idea to replace No Child Left Behind (NCLB).
What I like about the Race to the Top initiative is that at its core it stems from solid values, hard work and dedication.
Obama wants to set a high bar for states and school districts and give local governments more flexibility for achieving those goals.
