U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will deliver a major speech on education reform and announce the Race to the Top finalists Tuesday, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Ok Larry, I will bet you lunch on this one. Georgia will be a finalist again. (I am not sure whether we will be a winner come September, as I think our uncertain political climate — we could elect a school superintendent dead set against Race to the Top, if John Barge wins — might hurt us in the final award round.)
We narrowly missed getting grant in round one. We’ll see if our third place finish, after winners Tennessee and Delaware, works for us tomorrow.
