Delaware Education Secretary Mark Murphy got a grilling by lawmakers yesterday.
It came over his bid for $7.5 million to sustain the federal Race to the Top grant that runs out this year.
Several lawmakers complained to Murphy that too much of the federal funds went to bureaucracy and too little to helping out teachers in the classroom.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that the lawmakers questioned whether the state’s resources might not be better spent somewhere else.
Especially, they added, when the state budget was so tight.
