Recently Tennessee and Delaware were awarded funds from the federal "Race to the Top" education grant.  Vermont will be applying for the second round of "Race to the Top" funds later in the summer. But Vermont will need to compete and demonstrate how it's dealing with schools that are labeled as low achieving.  VPR's Jane Lindholm talks with Vermont Deputy Commissioner of Education Rae Ann Knopf and Ken Page, executive director the Vermont Principals' Association, about this competitive grant program and Vermont's efforts to improve schools.
