Education Week and other sources are saying it has been confirmed that second round Race to the Top winners will be announced tomorrow
New York is among the 17 states and the District of Columbia competing as finalists this time around.
Also, last week, gothamschools.org reported on how New York State's August 10 presentation to Race to the Top reviewers went, in the eyes of the state's team.
The team included Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch, Commissioner David Steiner, State Education Department Senior Deputy Commissioner John King, New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein, and New York City teacher union president Michael Mulgrew.
GothamSchools reported Chancellor Tisch said that "no surprises" came from the judges during the state's 90-minute presentation and question-and-answer session two weeks ago and that she added, "I just thought it was a very fair, frank conversation."
