letters to the LA Times| Re “State out of running for school funds,” March 5

3/9/10 -- AIG gets about $100 billion in bailout money with few strings attached, while schools across the nation have to compete for the scraps of $4.35 billion by creating even more hurdles for districts, students and teachers to navigate?

The lucky "winners" get the opportunity to "Race to the Top."

When will those at the top realize that the education of our kids isn't a race? It's a lifetime journey -- one that is only successful when educators and schools are given the respect and support they rightly deserve.
