Charter schools are not on the agenda for the special legislative session, and that means it's time to get the Race to the Top competition in proportion. Word is that eight to ten states will likely receive grants in round two.
Kentucky's round one score put us ninth overall and seventh among states that did not win that time. All states are working on strengthening their applications, and some could surge past us.
Still, please do remember that we are improving all the small weaknesses in our application, and know that there is serious work underway to make our evaluation section clearer and stronger.
A charter bill, even a weak one, could make us a shoe-in. Even without it, though, we're still in the running.
