From Rachel Monahan at the NY Daily Post:

Race to the Top funds would have meant 50G for one lucky education adviser

One high-priced consultant would have cashed in big-time if New York had succeeded in its doomed bid for millions in federal education funding.

As part of the state's Race to the Top applications, officials proposed paying an unidentified consultant $50,000 for just 10 days of work on developing "world-class prekindergarten standards."

"World-class prekindergarten standards"!? Well, at least they're not spending this on office furniture.
