Nearly 80 school districts and charter schools in Ohio have pulled out of the Race to the Top program since winning grants in 2010, in part, because the cost of implementing the mandates exceeds the federal award. Districts also cite having to switch a year early to the state's new teacher-evaluation system, which uses test scores to grade educators. "We were spending a disproportionate amount of time following all the requirements," said Mike Johnson, superintendent of Bexley schools, which has turned down a grant for this year.
