NY's Plan for Race to the Top
By Jasmyn Belcher
Oswego, NY – Today marks the deadline for school districts and charter schools to sign on to the state's Race to the Top plan. Race to the Top is a federal grant open to state education departments.
The goal of the funding is to improve education outcomes for all students and to close achievement gaps. As WRVO's Jasmyn Belcher reports, state lawmakers, teachers groups and education departments are working to make sure New York gets its fair shot at a potential $700 million.
