Reaching for Race to the Top Funds

Carnegie Corporation program officer Talia Milgrom-Elcott was one of the primary reviewers of a new paper laying out "good bets" for Colorado as it pursues a portion of the $4.35 billion in school-improvement money that the federal government will grant to states under the "Race to the Top" initiative. Read the paper.

Published by the National Council on Teacher Quality and funded by the Piton Foundation, the paper presents "good bets" for the state as it goes after the money, including the bold proposals for tracking the hiring, retaining, evaluating and terminating of teachers.
