Description

This memo, from one of Congressman Moakley’s staffers, Jimmy O’Leary, to another, Amy Levy, contains a draft of what is presumably a formal statement from Moakley in response to Judge Garrity’s receivership orders for South Boston High School. Written from Moakley’s perspective, the statement outlines his disagreement with Judge Garrity’s reasoning behind the orders and expresses his feelings that Garrity “must…consider alternative steps to achieving integrated education in Boston…”
