Race to the Dumpster

This description of NYS's failure to submit part of the necessary material for Race to the Top funding for schools epitomizes all that's wrong with our dysfunctional state government: 1) They wait till the last minute to decide anything, 2) They think compromise is a show of weakness, and 3) They are beholden to all manner of special interests, in this case, the teachers' unions. Meanwhile, the unions themselves don't seem to recognize that by standing in the way, they will lose thousands of members over the next couple of years, as local school districts trim budgets with reduced state aid and not one penny of this potential money from the feds. Eating their young, as usual.
