Forty-five school districts will be receiving money from the federal Race to the Top program. Gov. John Kasich says this will give those schools millions of dollars to fund new ways of teaching kids science and math skills.
Kasich says about half of Ohio’s school districts are participating in the Race to the Top program. He thinks all of them should be and says parents should ask school leaders who’ve chosen not to participate why they made that decision. Kasich says his office is working with teachers to establish criteria for teacher evaluation - something he says is necessary in the Race to the Top funding.
