Schools line up for Race to the Top dollars

Santa Rosa City Schools opted out of the state’s Race to the Top program, citing concerns about potential strings attached to the federal dollars and the prospect that districts with weaker schools would be targeted for the money.  But more than half the school districts in the state have applied, including most of the districts in Sonoma, Marin, Napa, Mendocino and Lake counties, according to a list posted at caracetothetop.org.

John Fensterwald, who blogs at educatedguess.org reports that teachers unions signed on in at least 115 districts statewide, despite the opposition of the California Teachers Association.  CTA doesn’t like the federal requirement that teacher evaluations be tied to objective measures, such as student test scores.
