On its Race to the Top application, New Jersey received zero out of a possible 4.8 points in one section because it provided budget numbers for 2010 and 2011 instead of 2008 and 2009 as the instructions dictated. Ohio, which beat New Jersey by three points in the competition, walked away with $400 million in education funds, while New Jersey received nothing. [CBS New York]
