Race to the Top Winners Announced
AP is reporting the list of 10 Race to the Top Winners (9 states and the District of Columbia). They are:
District of Columbia
I'm going to hold off saying any more here until I have a chance to really look at the scores and reviewer comments, but in the meantime, kudos to the winning states.
Disc: I helped prepare Rhode Island's Race to the Top application, so I'm personally very happy for their success. I'm also proud of my home not-state, Washington, D.C.
UPDATES: It must suck to be New Jersey right about now; the state came in 11th, just 3 points behind the lowest-ranking RTT winner, Ohio. Interestingly, New Jersey was also the state that gained the most points--34.4--in the interview stage of the competition.
