    Race To the Top grants contain lots of red tape that in the long run may may require districts to spend even more money regarding how they operate in order to accomplish new federal mandates. Funded for now.....but when the money runs out...........look out. It's Bait and Switch--the Feds pony up money in extortion (er....exchange) for implementation of unproven and controversial corporatist "reforms" that the likes of Secretary of Ed Arne Duncan and Michelle Rhee advocate. Folks in Galt better watch who is running their elementary school district from the Board on down. Teachers......what are you thinking in going along with this? You of all folks should know better about what works and what doesn't when it comes to school reform....and.....this isn't it. This explains a lot about why you've allowed your evaluation process to be usurped by the D.O. You change your bargaining agreement to get the money and then the money dries up and you're left with bad policy that minimizes the professional autonomy of classroom teachers. Why do you all think that most districts in California have opted to ignore the RTTT bait and switch scam?
