Reporter explains Race to the Top

The federal Race to the Top program is a complex beast that defies simple "for it" or "against it" positions. In this article, reporter Sarah Carr provides a solid overview of the state's plan for snagging as much as $315 million from the $4 billion-plus federal grant.

Carr does a good job of explaining the reservations of organizations like LFT. In the final analysis, as LFT President Steve Monaghan puts it in the article, the union's plan is "to stay fully engaged in the application and shape it as much as we possibly could."
