Connecticut is now 0-for-3 in its efforts to win a federal “Race to the Top” grant. The state wanted nearly 50-million dollars to beef up educations programs for young kids. The U.S. Department of Education said, “No.”
But I’m wondering if the feds didn’t actually say, “Who are you?”
“Where are you from?”
(A moment of thoughtful silence.)
“It’s between Boston and New York.”
It’s like having an unlisted phone number. We have an unlisted state.
Maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
