Post-Gazette: Pa. again left out of federal education program
Pennsylvania once again has lost its bid to win as much as $400 million in Race to the Top money for education.
The U.S. Department of Education today announced 10 winners: Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia. The amounts range from $75 million each for Hawaii, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia to $700 million for New York.
In the first round, Pennsylvania came in seventh, but just two winners — Delaware and Tennessee — were selected.
