Race to the Top District Winners Already Changing Their Plans – Education Week

Nine months after the U.S. Department of Education named 16 winners to share $400 million in the first Race to the Top for districts, change orders already are being approved.

The 16 winners have pitched ambitious plans to dramatically improve their districts, with a focus on personalized learning (a top priority of the department’s).

If the Race to the Top state contest is any guide, there are many more district amendment requests surely in the pipeline.
