The Obama administration's Race to the Top education competition is getting a facelift.
Education Secretary Arne Duncan says Wednesday that school districts across the country, in addition to state governments, will be able to seek federal dollars as part of the competition. Duncan has told a committee meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington that details about how the competition will work are still being hammered out.
Congress has given the administration approval to revamp the competition. Race to the Top has already awarded billions to winning states in exchange for educational reforms the administration favors. Congress approved $550 million for the competition in this budget year.
