Edweek’s PoliticsK-12 is betting that Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Tennessee will be winners in this first round of the Race To The Top competition. Thomas W. Carroll at the Foundation for Education Reform and Accountability says “very competitive” states are Florida, Louisiana, and Tennessee. He lists Colorado, Georgia, Delaware, and Michigan as “very competitive” and places New Jersey in the “likely loser" category.
