Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Florida a winner in Race to the Top?



 The Associated Press is reporting via Twitter that Florida is among the winners in the second round of Race to the Top. Other winners listed include New York, North Carolina, District of Columbia, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Ohio and Rhode Island.

We've got no independent confirmation, despite calls to several state officials. We do know that Gov. Charlie Crist has put in a call to the Pinellas school district requesting to appear at a school today if the news is good.

A formal announcement is expected shortly from the US Department of Education.
