TRENTON - The debate over New Jersey's failed "Race to the Top" application is heating up again.

The state's former Education Commissioner Bret Schundler was issued a subpoena and will testify in front of a legislative oversight committee this morning. The committee is still investigating the state's botched "Race to the Top" application, which not only cost the state a chance at $400 million for public education, but cost the commissioner his job.

Schundler was issued the subpoena compelling him to testify by Sen. Barbara Buono, the committee's chairperson. The executives of the consulting company the state hired to help put together its application were also subpoenaed and have not yet responded.
