I wasn’t going to post a new question until late August, but this week marks the fifth anniversary of the Obama administration’s announcing the first Race To The Top competition. Ed Week has invited all its opinion bloggers to post about it.

So, this week’s question is:

Has Race To The Top been a success, a fiasco, or something in between?

Please share your thoughts in the comments or, if you prefer, feel free to email them to me at lferlazzo@epe.org. Another option is contacting me on Twitter at @Larryferlazzo.

I’ll be posting responses on Monday morning, so please send them in by Sunday afternoon.

Apart from this question and response, during the summer I’ll be continuing to share thematic posts bringing together responses on similar topics from the past three years, as well as interviews with authors of important education titles. You can see what’s been posted so far here.

Education Week has published a collection of posts from this blog -- along with new material -- in an ebook form. It’s titled Classroom Management Q&As: Expert Strategies for Teaching and happens to be on sale this week.

Lastly, remember that you can subscribe and receive updates from this blog via email or RSS Reader.

I’m looking forward to hearing what readers have to say!
