Race to the Top is the Obama Administration’s education reform initiative. It overlapped with former President Bush’s No Child Left Behind. Race to the Top was not a law; No Child Left Behind was (it was technically and Act of Congress that reauthorized the Elementary and Secondary Education Act). Race to the Top was something states opted into; No Child Left Behind was mandatory. In this clip, watch how President Obama frames the need for education reform and list to the words he uses. Then, hop over to this video by President Bush and see how they compare.
