LITHONIA, GA – Rep. Hank Johnson (GA-04) released the following statement today on Georgia being awarded $400 million in Race to the Top funds to reform education:

“Congratulations to the State of Georgia and in the Fourth Congressional District –DeKalb, Rockdale and Gwinnett schools ¬– for taking this competition seriously and thinking constructively about how to improve the education of all our children,” said Johnson.

“We need bold and innovative ways to decide what is and what is not working in our classrooms. We must close the achievement gap to not only improve our neighborhood schools, but make us more competitive as a state and as a nation. Race to the Top is a great tool for creating new, innovative ways to educate our children.”
