Georgia is a finalist in the "Race to the Top," a federal incentive for education reform. The state is one of 19 finalists the U.S. Department of Education has chosen for the second round of the federal grants. U.S. Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan says not all finalists will make the cut. Only two states were awarded the grants in the first Race to the Top round. Georgia came in third.
