NJ Hands in Race To The Top Application

Today the NJ Department of Education submitted its application for the third round of the federal Race To The Top competition. This proposal targets early child education – 75,000 poor kids from birth to age 5 – who don’t live in Abbott districts. (Abbotts already have comprehensive programs.)

In a press release, the DOE laid out four priorities imbedded in our grant application: improving existing programs by expanding our in-state accountability metrics; regional training programs for staff members; increasing family access to information; and improving data analysis through a new program called NJ-EASEL that would track children and programs.
