ABSTRACT
The article discusses expected requirements for grants from the U.S. Department of Education's "Race to the Top" fund of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Fund. Requirements are expected in July 2009 but hints dropped by Education Secretary Arne Duncan indicate four likely crucial areas. These include turnaround of low-performing schools and lifting of caps on charter schools, improving teacher quality, and strengthening state data systems.
