While I am concerned about the conditions mentioned in the report regarding the area
high schools, I am pleased that the New York State Department of Education/New York
City Department of Education Joint Intervention Team has recommended to keep the schools
open. I intend to work with the DOE to ensure that the best education possible is provided
for the young students and their families. It is time to move ahead and work together
to help these students achieve success.
