Charter Schools

"Race To The Top" Finalists Include Charter Schools, Networks

About 10 percent of the 61 finalists representing more than 200 school districts are charters


The U.S. Education Department just named 61 finalists in its Race to the Top-District competition that will divide nearly $400 million among those deemed to have the "best" school reform plans. The finalists in the contest — which, to be clear, is intended for school districts, as the name of the competition suggests — include charter schools, charter school networks, district consortiums, and boards of education. Districts from states that have already won Race to the Top money are also on the list.

Interesting list.
