A report released Thursday by the U.S. Department of Education shows that nine of 12 jurisdictions to receive Race to the Top grants have performed well. The three found to be struggling are the District of Columbia, Maryland and Georgia, which was moved into a "high risk" category because of a lack of progress on teacher evaluations. Among the challenges reported were the District's pace in completing a database to track students' achievement, and issues with hiring qualified staff to run data systems in Maryland.
