Florida’s Race to the Top application is sparking some buzz and what went down in Michigan caught some eyes, too. Now in New York the commissioner there, David Steiner, has put forward an ambitious set of ideas intended to breath some life into the educationally moribund legislature there. Recall that reformer Sam Hoyt’s bill was basically declared DOA. But since then the reality that this thing may not be wired for New York has set in. Keep an eye on that.
Also, Louisiana, a state long considered a top tier candidate, is putting together what looks like a strong plan. A lot of excitement from reformy types in the state.
And watch the legislative action in CO.
Update: It’s one step forward one step back in Michigan…
