Maryland Delegate Keiffer Mitchell (D-Baltimore), '94, is quoted in The Baltimore Sun calling for increased oversight of spending in the Baltimore City school system, amid revelations that about $500,000 was spent to upgrade offices at the district headquarters while city and state leaders fought for funding to fix dilapidated school buildings.

Keiffer Mitchell said the renovation spending at central headquarters "screams the accountability question." Mitchell has repeatedly introduced legislation in the General Assembly in recent years to return schools to mayoral control, from the current structure of a city-state partnership. He has also advocated for more funding to improve school buildings.

"Of all the times, this definitely was not the time for this to happen," he said of revelations about the renovations.
