Race to the Top: An Example of Belief-Dependent Reality. A Response to "Race to the Top Leaves Children and Future Citizens Behind"
Mathis, William J.
Democracy & Education, v19 n2 Article 6 2011
Although the federal government claims otherwise, Race to the Top is not research based. Rather, its foundation is in ideology and belief-based realism. The overall effort is fundamentally antiscientific and distracts valuable and needed attention, resources, and focus from the nation's real problems of social, economic, and educational deprivation.
