Idaho won’t reapply for ‘Race to the Top’ funds for schools

Idaho won’t apply for the next round of federal “Race to the Top” funding after all, state Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna announced today, after its first-round application was rejected. Luna had been enthusiastic about the program the first time around, saying it might be the only new funds Idaho schools would see next year, and it could bring millions to the state. Only two states, Delaware and Tennessee, were selected in the first round. Luna said he’s giving up on the second round for a variety of reasons, including the difficulty for school districts facing budget cuts to complete the second-round application by a June 1 deadline; click below to read Luna’s full announcement.
