California may win smaller grant from federal 'Race to the Top'

May 26, 2011 2:20:23 AM- latimes.com
California's previous plan for schools could have won $700 million from 'Race to the Top,' but federal officials may award $50 million to the Golden State after revisions.

California and eight other states are in line to receive a consolation prize after falling short in the widely publicized "Race to the Top" competition for federal school-reform grants. The belated funding, as much as $50 million for the Golden State, would recognize the quality of California's plan but with a potential reward that would be a fraction of the payoff received by earlier recipients.
