BISMARCK -- North Dakota was among a group of 10 states that didn't take part in competition for $4.35 billion in federal education grant money.

North Dakota school superintendent Wayne Sanstead says applying for "Race to the Top" money would have cost more than $250,000 just to prepare the paperwork.

Sanstead says the program also favors states with charter schools and other education practices that North Dakota doesn't follow.

Forty states applied for a slice of the federal money. The U.S. Education Department named 16 states as finalists on Thursday.

Sanstead says a second grant round opens up this summer, and he and other North Dakota education officials will discuss whether it's worth it to take part.
