Wisconsin races to capture major money in Obama's education program
Wisconsin can get $150 to $250 million in President Obama's Race to the Top education program, but it will have to beat out a group of other states.
The education department announced the application process Thursday. The deadline is Jan. 19 to apply for the first round of federal grants.
And the reforms made by each state will determine who gets the money, especially for academic standards, testing, recruiting and keeping good teachers, and improving troubled schools.
