ALL of our children deserve to be educated at a school that is not “failing.”
There are as many as 26,000 of the 32,000 students in the Buffalo Public school System who are trapped in failing schools.
The “No Child Left Behind Act” in Title 34, Subtitle B, Chapter II, Part 200, Subpart A of the federal education law provides that every student enrolled in a FAILING school, who wishes to transfer to a non-failing school, must have that opportunity.
There is little to no capacity in the few well-performing schools. Our children need to be placed in well-performing schools NOW.
