Wisconsin Again Not Among Race Finishers
Wisconsin can kiss that $250 million goodbye. A quarter billion dollars was how much the state was seeking under the federal Race to the Top program in round two applications. One of 35 states to apply for grant money in the competitive program. Finalists announced today by the feds and Wisconsin is not on the list. La Crosse schools would have been among the states biggest winners had the application gone through, potentially collecting over a million dollars in grants.
