Document Number: 11226State Requirements for Teacher Evaluation Policies Promoted by Race to the Top - Congress appropriated $5.05 billion for Race to the Top between 2009 and 2012, the largest competitive grant program ever administered by the U.S. Department of Education.

Few aligned with using evaluation to make promotion and compensation decisions.
