The first student to ever be appointed to the Buffalo Board of Education Stephon M. Wright was sworn in recently to this newly created post. Stephon is a senior at Emerson High School and his appointment to the board will address some of the issues and challenges that the students in the area face on a daily  basis  and their efforts to step up to those challenges.

I applaud the board for giving those who are affected by the educational system the most a voice in recommending some changes to the system.

But will having a student on the board really change things with the Buffalo Public Schools? What are your thoughts on what the board has done and will it make a difference in your opinion?
