Throwing Money at a Problem

 Schools ponder how to use Race to the Top money.
Millions of dollars soon will flow into local school districts, courtesy of a $696 million federal Race to the Top grant the state was awarded in August. . . .
Although school districts are aware of just how much funding they will receive, officials said it’s difficult to pinpoint what the money will be used for . . . Districts have until Nov. 8 to tell the state how the money will be used.
In other words, money is simply given to local districts that have no plan. Nice.

Buying votes, perhaps?
