BPS Superintendent Criticizes Governor Cuomo over Closing
Buffalo Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Kriner Cash, criticized New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's handling of closing schools.
“It is an insult to try to cut off a point politically of when we go back to school, or when we would be considering to go back to school because you think teachers are going to go on vacation. I said, 'What are you talking about?' I said, 'What vacation do you think anybody is going on right now?'” ~ Buffalo Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Kriner Cash
"This two-weeks hammer is creating an unnecessary anxiety on our children, and on our families, and on our staff." ~ Buffalo Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Kriner Cash
Previously, Governor Cuomo ordered all schools in New York to close until April 1, according to WRGZ. Then, he issued another order, keeping schools across the state closed for an additional two weeks, even though they were supposed to be on break.
“I said, 'So stop giving us these two-week increments of when we’re going to come back to school, or we will be threatened with lack of school funding.'” ~ Buffalo Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Kriner Cash
