Monday “Think About It”


rtttmap1Looking back, was the decision of Alaska, North Dakota, Texas, and Vermont to not apply for Federal “Race to the Top (RTTT)” funding wise?  Their rationale as stated by Texas Gov. Rick Perry in a 2010 press release was “we would be foolish and irresponsible to place our children’s future in the hands of unelected bureaucrats and special interest groups thousands of miles away in Washington, virtually eliminating parents’ participation in their children’s education.  If Washington were truly concerned about funding education with solutions that match local challenges, they would make the money available to states with no strings attached.”
