ED Seeks Reviewers for Race to the Top

ED is seeking recommendations for reviewers for Race to the Top, the $4.35 billion competition for states to lead the way in school reforms.

“We hope to assemble panels of our nation’s most distinguished educators, policymakers, and scholars to participate in the review process for this ambitious reform initiative,” Secretary Arne Duncan said in a letter this week. “I am writing to ask for your help in identifying candidates for consideration.”

“I encourage you to share this letter with anyone you feel is qualified,” he said. He asked for recommendations as soon as possible and no later than September 30, 2009.

For more information about the review process or about applying to be on a panel, please see the letter.
