“Race to the Top actually began a race to the bottom”

Posted on Updated on

 

For years the U.S. has struggled to climb its rank in the world in education, while simultaneously cutting funding to they public school teachers and faculty they depend on to achieve that goal.

In light of the recent criticism of U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, felt it was pertinent to share a clip from an independent project two years ago. Many thanks to Patrick Diegnan, Amy Scott and Max Bawarski, and the principal who allowed me onto the school grounds in Arlington for some of the footage.
