"There are existing and unused opportunities in the city schools for families who might want to move into the city," Mr. Alonso said at a meeting of the military Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) subcommittee, led by Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown. "We have some of the best magnet high schools in the state. There is an opportunity to expand on what those high schools already offer."
