Mass. not among Race to the Top winners

Delaware and Tennessee were the only two finalists selected for a share of $4 billion in Race to the Top education funds, leaving Massachusetts and several other states to compete for second round funding, the New York Times reports. Georgia and Florida came in third and fourth. Massachusetts had lifted its cap on the number of charter schools in order to compete for the funds.

Second-round applications are due June 1, and those winners are expected to be announced in September.

It would hardly be fair. Massachusetts is already the top public school system in the country, so participation would give us a home-court advantage.
