Maryland wins Race to the Top

Maryland was one of the nine states and the District of Columbia to win a portion of the $3.4 billion in education funding. The state will receive $250 million.

It is interesting to look at the scoring of the competition. In the first round the winners scored 440 points. This time the lowest scorers had 440 points.

Maryland tied with the District of Columbia for a score of 450 and came in sixth overall. Massachusetts had a score of 471.

U.S. Secretary of Education said he would like to have funded a number of other states that he believed had good applications, but that he ran out of funds.

That is good for Maryland to win the top. I just hope that the prize was being used for the welfare of the people living on the area.
