What if states and districts returned the favor and came up with their own “reverse” version of the Race To The Top? Fair’s fair. The USDE has been wagging its finger in state and district faces for months now.
A “reverse” RTTT could include closing loopholes that let states lower standards (or let districts exclude low-scoring students), better coordination between IDEA and NCLB, sending Title I money to states and districts in a more equitable, targeted way, improving the distribution of effective teachers by enforcing the comparability provision, and rating and defunding ineffective ed school programs. And that’s just a start. Better early childhood education would be nice (good luck with the Head Start mafia, BTW). Higher reimbursement for NAEP participation.A limit on district setasides.
You may have better ideas. The main point is that, for every firewall and charter cap out there in the states, there’s something under the direct control of the USDE and Congress that’s just as bad if not worse.
Does anybody really know what the federal oversights on RTTT are or will the oversights and penalties come after the state grants announcments in April?
Anaheim City School District Rejects Race To The Top Mandates 1 day ago – After a detailed staff presentation on RTTT and thoughtful Board discussion, a motion to submit the state-required MOU signifying the District’s intent to …
This fact created many “unknowns” as to what the Board was being asked to commit to and, because the funds are one-time dollars, the Board expressed deep concerns regarding mandated, ongoing costs. While submitting an MOU would have resulted in modest funding, the RTTT requires Districts to agree to comply with all tenets of RTTT including implementing merit pay, subscribing to a narrow and restrictive set of approaches to improving low-performing schools, and the possibility of having to “repay” grant funding if all benchmarks were not achieved.
Anaheim City School District is a diverse family of 24 schools, serving 19,300 K-6 students in a dynamic, standards-based learning community. As one of the largest elementary school districts in California, ACSD offers a broad range of programs and learning opportunities.
So if California receives RTTT funding Anaheim doesnt receive funding but must follow the same RTTT rules as all California schools? Delaware DOE tells Red Clay School District sign or the rule apply anyway
Either Anaheim is stupid or Red Clay was rolled under a bus !
