D.C. education leaders announced today that the District is one of 16 finalists selected to compete in the Obama Administration’s Race to the Top school reform contest. The Administration plans to announce the winners of the $4 billion-dollar contest in April.
Twenty-five states, including Virginia, were sent back to the drawing board to revise their applications for the competition’s second round. Duncan says the finalists set an example for the country of what is possible when
adults come together to do the right thing for children.
