Race To The Top $$: CT Loses Again

by Categorized: Education Date:

After a string of disappointing rejections, Connecticut hoped to win some of the coveted federal education money that rewards reform-minded school districts and states.

A list posted on the federal Department of Education website shows that Connecticut has again lost out, with applications by Hartford and Bridgeport falling short. Both cities were finalists.

Connecticut\’s three previous bids for Race to the Top funding failed.

    Thank the local AFT and NEA Unions! CT remains one of those rusting post-industrial holes controlled by Luddite Unions.

    Right-To-Work Legislation. School Vouchers. Real School Choice including parchial and religious and private schools. Then we see some changes in CT and begin to restore competiveness.

    The First GOP member to compare SEBAC to organized crime and criminal political influence detrimental to the state’s taxpayers will win the 2014 war. CT can follow Michigan!

    Connecticut is winning the race to the bottom: bottom of job creation, debt/capita, tax burden, places to retire to, gasoline tax, and credit rating.

    Well done Connecticut! Keep up the great work!
