"Thirty-five states and Washington, D.C., will compete for the second round of federal Race to the Top funding -- all vying for a share of $3.4 billion. Many states have altered education policies regarding teacher tenure, educator pay and charter schools to qualify for the funding. Florida and Georgia are favorites to win funding. In March, Delaware was awarded about $100 million and Tennessee about $500 million through the first round of funding." The Washington Post
