August 24, 2010View for printing

The U.S. Department of Education selected 10 winners to share $3.4 billion in its "Race to the Top" competition.

The District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island will receive funds set aside for states who could document that they would use the money to implement certain overhauls. Those changes include greater teacher accountability, the use of data systems and support for the growth of charter schools.
