Race to the top

July 24, 2009

Hopefully the Holyoke Public School system doesn’t blow this one either.

The Department of Education will conduct a national competition among states this year for $4 billion of the Race to the Top Fund to improve education quality and results statewide. The Race to the Top Fund will support states’ effort to drive substantial gains in student achievement. These grants will focus on four reform goals – using data to drive instruction, raising standards, turning around historically low-performing schools, and improving teacher and principal quality – as described in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

It’s been reported, that School Districts may apply on their own, instead of going through state government
