Center On Education Policy Says Race To The Top Reforms Will Take Time To Show Results

Over the last two years, many states changed their education policies to better compete for federal stimulus dollars through the Race to the Top program. The Center on Education Policy says many states have been slow to improve school assessments, though education standards have been raised in many states.

But without stimulus dollars to apply for, CEP president Jack Jennings says lawmakers may give up on education reform. That, he says, would be a mistake.
