"I congratulate the Moreland Commission and the Governor for producing this comprehensive report.
"The report demonstrates clear deficiencies in the Board of Education's management of school facilities that must be addressed.
"The specific recommendations made by the Commission make sense. But even more effective than any individual reform would be a fundamental reform of the school system that makes the system accountable to the people it is supposed to serve. This report offers some of the strongest evidence yet for the urgency of mayoral control of the public schools."
