Weeks after NY State lost out on the first round of "Race to the Top" federal education funding, it seems unlikely officials will try again. Apparently the state doesn't have its act together to fight for potentially hundreds of millions of dollars: Merryl Tisch, the NYS Board of Regents chancellor, said, "We will not submit an application that we do not believe is going to be competitive" and Governor Paterson told NY1, "Right now, I am trying to get legislature to pass a budget. They were very resistant to the whole 'Race To The Top' concept." A few weeks ago, the city was rumored to be considering a solo "Race to the Top" bid.
