Race to the Top - A Failure for State Ed Reforms? (968.8 KB)
Summary
Michigan has once again been eliminated from the "Race To The Top" competition for federal education grant money. Educational reforms had passed the Legislature and were signed into law by the Governor earlier this year, in part to make Michigan more attractive for this program. Now that this state has swung and missed twice in this competition, does it mean that the reforms should now be rescinded, or that the reforms weren’t a good idea? State Senator Wayne Kuipers of Holland, chair of the Senate Education Committee, talked with News Director Gary Stevens about that.
