U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced today that ten states were winners in the second round of the program. Those applicants claimed awards ranging from $75 million to $700 million.

The winners announced by the Education Department Tuesday are: Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Rhode Island ó and the District of Columbia for the grants. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said 25,000 schools will get money to raise student learning and close the achievement gap.
Only two states - Delaware and Tennessee - won money in the first round.

These states show what is possible when adults come together to do the right thing for children. Every state that applied showed a tremendous amount of leadership and a bold commitment to education reform. The creativity and innovation in each of these applications is breathtaking. We set a high bar and these states met the challenge.
