Isn’t it amazing that 40 states have applied for $4.35 billions in the Race to the Top funds…. The states need to demonstrate that their proposals are bold and innovative. Not a rehash of the status quo.
Yet, all states will share in the much larger number, $12.2 billions of additional, NEW moneys added to special education. They do not need to show any innovation or boldness any reform the system. That money goes to support the status quo.
Make sense? Not me me either.
