Pr. Geo. signs onto Race to the Top
The Prince George's County teachers union has signed onto Maryland's Race to the Top application, according to the Maryland State Department of Education. This is considered significant because the Montgomery County union did not endorse the state bid. Both county unions are affiliates of the National Education Association.
In all, 22 of the state's 24 school systems have endorsed the bid, according to state education spokesman Bill Reinhard. The holdouts are Montgomery and Frederick counties. Tuesday is the deadline for states to apply for a share of $3.4 billion in federal school improvement aid.
