The Monitors presented a detailed and thorough report today that provides a blueprint for moving the district forward. The report calls for extensive programmatic and structural changes that will fundamentally improve the educational opportunities for students. I am ready to sponsor and fight for any legislation necessary to implement todays recommendations. Once again, a monitor with veto authority and increased funding are at the heart of the recommendations. Politics should not get in the way of these essential elements of the improvement plan. This issue has now been studied twice with similar findings. We know the problems, lets implement the solutions.
