University of Hawaiʻi President M.R.C. Greenwood issued the following statement this morning in response to Hawaiʻi's selection for a Race to the Top grant:
“I am pleased and proud to see that the federal government is making this investment in education in Hawaiʻi. The Race to the Top team did an excellent job in making a strong case for support. This $75-million infusion places Hawaiʻi in a much better position to build a solid foundation for learning for all of its students, and it will be extremely helpful as Hawaiʻi works to achieve educational reforms in the coming years.”
