Just wanted to let you know that our coverage of Race to the Top is airing tonight on the NewsHour, and should add something valuable to the discussion. We followed representatives from Maryland and Colorado, among other states, as they approached their RTTT applications.
Watch tonight, or watch the segment online after it airs: http://learningmatters.tv/blog/on-the-newshour/race-to-the-top-the-race-is-on/3758/#pbs

Interesting. I’d like to see how it turns out.
States not applying to RTTT in round 1 — Alaska, Maryland, Maine,
Mississippi, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Texas, Vermont, and Washington
I predict the winners will be those states smart enough to heed the advice of the people who actually deliver instruction to the nation’s children: our teachers.
