Race To The Top: Chicago, Fresno, Las Vegas Submit Applications
While several big-name districts like LAUSD weren't able to win union approval for their Race to the Top applications, this LA School Report post (Districts Compromise To Win Union Support) notes that neither the outcome nor the reactions were uniform nationwide. Chicago, Las Vegas, and Fresno were able to come to an agreement. Editorial pages in LA were divided over whether to lay blame at the feet of the union alone or at the feet of both the union and the school district. The USDE hasn't yet released a final list of districts that have applied for the competition - or at least not to me.
