Members of a landmark Maryland education commission on Monday painted a bleak picture of the state’s education system, one in which students are failing and teachers are fleeing, and warned that without drastic reforms by the General Assembly the state’s economy will face dire consequences.

House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones (D-Baltimore County) said the findings of the commission, which was tasked with making recommendations to revamp the state’s public school system, were “devastating,” and she urged her colleagues Monday to pass long-anticipated legislation that calls for sweeping changes to the system.
