In Tennessee, following the rules for evaluations off a cliff
from The New York Times
Last year, when Tennessee was named one of the first two states to win a federal Race to The Top grant, worth $501 million, there was great joy all around. Education Secretary Arne Duncan, who has the job of implementing President Barack Obama's signature education program, praised Tennessee officials for having "the courage, capacity and commitment to turn their ideas into practices that can improve outcomes for students." Gov. Bill Haslam, a Republican, called his state "the focal point of education reform in the nation." Tennessee's new motto is "First to the Top."
