[Susan notes: It is an excellent strategy to reveal what chump change the Race to the Top funds actually are.]
To the editor
The Spokesman-Review editorial (May 9, 2010) heaped praise on the Race to the Top (RTTT) initiative sponsored by U. S. Sec. of Ed., Arne Duncan. The writers urged all Washington school boards to jump on the RTTT bandwagon. Pullman schools would get a whooping $24 per student, while Washtucna will reap a $22 per student windfall. (These amounts could be raised by local PTA bake sales.)
