Race to the Top

According to the Democrats for Education Reform, The U.S. Education Secretary's $5 billion Race To The Top Fund, as included in the federal stimulus package, represents a historic opportunity to establish clear reform priorities and to back them up with significant resources to bring change to America's schools. Note: In this scheme of things there are only three winners and LOTS of losers. No surprise. Isn't that what a race is all about? These Democrats are being generous: Usually there's only one winner.
