HOW CAN WE FIX THE STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS IN BUFFALO SCHOOLS?

OVERVIEW:

Taken from the Buffalo News yesterday April 19th:

Two out of three elementary students in Buffalo Public Schools are reading below grade level. Nearly half the students in the district never graduate from school. And among black males, three out of four never graduate.

The tipping point came in February, when Superintendent James A. Williams pointed his finger at public education as a whole.

“Public education was never designed to educate black people,” he said. “It’s still not. And I look at New York State is structured to force kids to drop out of school.”
