Race to the Top expansion aimed at Texas?

    So Texas would get about $75 per student, but be required to spend up to an additional $635 per student. I love government math.

    This country already spends the most on education than any other country. Why should anyone think spending more is going to make a change? Sounds like more of the same to me and I'm sure the same results.

    I like how they cropped that picture of Obama so that you can't see the two teleprompters he had to use to speak to an elementary school class.

    Dare I mention that we are paying local property taxes out the wazoo here in Dallas where 1/2 of those funds go to the local school district, yet they're still cozying up to the Feds for more...!
    When does this nightmare end?!

    I think it is really $75 per student over 4 years, which really would be $18.75/year/student. The school year in Texas contains about 180 days of school. That means this whole program is worth about 10 cents a day per student AND that is only if the state wouldn't have taken a cut.

    LC, you're right! I just saw the story about the teleprompters, I guess he needs to take those everywhere.
