 March 29, 2010  -- State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox issued the following statement today regarding the announcement that Georgia was not selected as a Phase One winner of Race to the Top funds.  "It is unfortunate that Georgia was not named a winner for Race to the Top funds, but I know we are well-positioned to be in contention for the next round of funding," said State Superintendent of Schools Kathy Cox. "We will take the U.S. Department of Education's suggestions and work on perfecting those parts of the application for Phase Two. For seven years, Georgia has been focused on the very issues called for in the Race to the Top application.
