Will New Buffalo School Board Members Make A Difference? [POLL] [KNOW THYSELF COMMUNITY WEDNESDAY]

The Buffalo Board of Education held its election yesterday, and it was the largest turnout in three years, with over 11,000 people casting ballots. In 2010, a little over 7,000 people took part in the election process.

From all of the districts, South Buffalo had the largest turnout, which was 50 percent higher than it was in 2007. Of course, a large number of people turned out to vote for one of Buffalo’s wealthiest men, Carl Paladino. Who said that “I think it’s going to ring around the city that it’s time to face the problems in this town, and our education system is the no. 1 problem right now”!

Was yesterday’s election proof that parents are waking up to the fact that something needs to be done to improve the standards of education in the Buffalo schools and that it’s important to the well-being of their children to get the proper education that they need to be functional citizens in society?
