Members of the Iowa House are expected to begin discussions Friday on whether or not the state should take part in the federal Race to the Top program. It’s a competitive grant that would impose certain educational reforms. The state had asked school districts to sign on in support of the measure…something Washington Board members are declining to do. The board’s Troy Suchan says the guidelines of the program are too vague. The deadline for districts to sign on was Thursday.
