Friday Reading List: Grab Your Popcorn
No big plans this weekend?
Well, the U.S. Department of Education has you covered. Grab the popcorn and the Junior Mints and invite your friends over for a Race to the Top presentation movie marathon.

Sorry, action figures of the panel of judges aren't available yet.
Here's a quick hit review from Lesli Maxwell over at the State EdWatch blog.
And when you're done with your viewing party, head on over to the New Teacher Project, where they've graded the Race to the Top grading system.
If it's a tear-jerker you're in the mood for, check out the Committee on Education Funding's compilation of stories and reports on how districts are coping with the recession.
