A Highland School Board Member says the district is signed on for the federal Race to the Top program. Mike Roberts says there is enough good to overcome some of the potential problems. He says no bill is perfect for everyone, and Highland school is already a lot of what the measure will mandate. Roberts says it will be nice for Highland to get funding for such things. Race to the top is a competitive grant program designed to encourage and reward states that are creating the conditions for education innovation and reform.
