My Draft Letter to Duncan
Below follows the draft text I emailed to Chief of Staff Rich Bagger for a letter to United States Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan.It makes points I knew the Governor’s office wanted, but does not include a claim that we provided our grant interviewers with the data our application was missing.

B
 
Dear
 
Secretary
 
Duncan:
 
On
 
behalf
 
of
 
the
 
State
 
of
 
New
 
Jersey
 
and
 
its
 
Department
 
of
 
Education,
 
I
 
am
 
writing
 
to
 
request
 
that
 
you
 
consider
 
awarding
 
New
 
Jersey
 
the
 
$75
 
million
 
in
 
statewide
 
reform
 
Race
 
to
 
The
 
Top
 
(RTTT)
 
funding
 
which
 
remains
 
unallocated.
 
Among
 
states
 
which
 
have
 
not
 
received
 
RTTT
 
grants,
 
New
 
Jersey's
 
application
 
score
 
was
 
the
 
highest,
 
and
 
our
 
state's
 
reform
 
agenda
 
and
 
nearly
 
1.4
 
million
 
children
 
would
 
measurably
 
benefit
 
from
 
New
 
Jersey
 
having
 
these
 
funds
 
to
 
support
 
its
 
reforms.
 
As
 
you
 
are
 
aware,
 
the
 
Race
 
to
 
the
 
Top
 
program
 
as
 
established
 
by
 
the
 
American
 
Recovery
 
and
 
Reinvestment
 
Act
 
of
 
2009
 
was
 
appropriated
 
$4
 
billion
 
in
 
funding.
 
Grants
 
announced
 
to
 
date
 
to
 
the
 
twelve
 
winning
 
states
 
of
 
Round
 
1
 
and
 
Round
 
2
 
of
 
the
 
competition
 
total
 
a
 
maximum
 
of
 
$3.925
 
billion.
 
Therefore,
 
$75
 
million
 
remains
 
unallocated.
 
New
 
Jersey
 
would
 
be
 
an
 
ideal
 
and
 
deserving
 
recipient
 
of
 
these
 
funds.
 
New
 
Jersey's
 
Round
 
2
 
application
 
score
 
of
 
438.8
 
is
 
the
 
highest
 
among
 
states
 
which
 
did
 
not
 
receive
 
funding,
 
and
 
our
 
scores
 
trails
 
that
 
of
 
Ohio
 
by
 
just
 
3
 
points.
 
Comments
 
from
 
our
 
reviewers
 
include:
 
"The
 
application
 
put
 
forth
 
a
 
very
 
straightforward
 
and
 
powerful
 
reform
 
agenda
 
that
 
clearly
 
focuses
 
on
 
students
 
and
 
their
 
educational
 
welfare."
 
"The
 
NJ
 
education
 
reform
 
agenda
 
is
 
clear
 
and
 
comprehensive."
 
"State
 
leadership
 
for
 
the
 
initiative
 
is
 
strong,
 
and
 
the
 
plans
 
demonstrate
 
a
 
deep
 
understanding
 
of
 
the
 
challenges
 
and
 
opportunities
 
offered
 
by
 
the
 
reform
 
effort."
 
"New
 
Jersey
 
has
 
articulated
 
a
 
strong,
 
comprehensive
 
reform
 
agenda"
