A commission reviewing Mississippi's public school structure has proposed steps to smooth the way for school districts to consolidate, but it did not mandate any mergers.

The governor's office released the report Friday.

Gov. Haley Barbour formed the Commission on Mississippi Educational Structure last year after he proposed reducing the state's 152 school districts by one-third as a way to save money.

The commission recommended that consolidation continue to be voluntary, with the state providing some incentives to entice mergers.
