Report: Four Years Later, Are Race to the Top States on Track?

A new report released by the Center for American Progress provides an analysis of the U.S. Department of Education’s most recent evaluation data measuring the progress of the 12 states participating in Phases 1 and 2 of Race to the Top. The report provides an examination of the U.S. Department of Education’s latest Annual Performance Report, which demonstrates the states’ progress. The analysis identifies several overarching findings that emerged in the review of the data: Many of the lowest-performing schools in RTT states have achieved impressive results in a short period of time, four RTT states are at or near full implementation of their educator evaluation systems, and all other states are in the process of implementing their systems, and all RTT states have adopted college- and career-ready standards and are making progress toward implementation of assessments aligned with those standards.
