Civil Rights Groups criticize Race to the Top

A coalition of civil rights organizations, including the NAACP, issued a scathing report about RTTT, calling on President Obama and Arne Duncan to dismantle core components of the law...

"The Race to the Top Fund and similar strategies for awarding federal
education funding will ultimately leave states competing with states,
parents competing with parents, and students competing with other
students..... By emphasizing competitive incentives in this economic
climate, the majority of low-income and minority students will be left
behind and, as a result, the United States will be left behind as a
global leader."
