US Department of Education
The Race to the Top State competitions provided incentives to States to adopt bold and comprehensive reforms in elementary and secondary education and laid the foundation for unprecedented innovation. A total of 46 States and the District of Columbia put together plans to implement college- and career-ready standards, use data systems to guide learning and teaching, evaluate and support teachers and school leaders, and turn around their lowest-performing schools. The purpose of the Race to the Top--District competition is to build on the momentum of other Race to the Top competitions by encouraging bold, innovative reform at the local level. The Race to the Top--District competition is aimed squarely at classrooms and the all-important relationship between educators and students.
