Aaron Short of the New York Post shows how New York City used the $107 million in Race to the Top funding that it received during the Bloomberg administration.

Let’s just sat it was NOT a game-changer:

“Bureaucrats are winning the Race to the Top.

“Less than a quarter of the $107 million that the school system received in federal Race to The Top funds last year was sent directly to school principals.

“The decision on how to spend most of the money — $83 million — was made by the central Department of Education, which channeled the federal funds to support staff, consultants and fringe benefits, according to a study by the Independent Budget Office.”

A spokesperson for the DOE defended the allocation of funds to central office, saying that it takes a lot of people to run such a big system.

My question: why is the de Blasio administration defending the bad decisions of the Bloomberg administration?
