I left the house in a Buffalo public school last month.
It was late afternoon and I couldn’t get a cab because the driver had just dropped me off at work.
When I called the driver, he hung up.
The next morning I called him back.
He was on the phone for an hour.
He hadn’t heard from me, either.
I couldn, however, tell from his voice that he’d been working late and didn’t have any new news.
I could hear the words, “It’s been an accident,” in his voice.
It’s been four months since I left, and I’ve spent a year trying to make sense of what happened.
What I learned in Buffalo: The Buffalo Public Schools district was, for a time, an open and tolerant school district.
The district was built to serve students of color and low-income students in a school system that was largely white.
Buffalo Public Schools has more than 300,000 students.
The majority of students in the district are white, and about half of those students are in grades K-8.
There were several schools in the school district that were closed because of the outbreak.
These schools were mostly white, low-enrollment, and low achievement schools, and the closures hurt their students the most.
Students were moved from the Buffalo Public School to the Erie County School District (ECSD) because they were too unsafe to return to their classrooms.
The ECSD is also a predominantly white, mostly low-needs school system.
I was moved to a middle-income school in Buffalo because my grades were in the upper-middle class range.
But I wasn’t allowed to return there until after I graduated from the ECSID.
While the ECRD’s enrollment has steadily declined over the years, enrollment in the Buffalo public system is still very high.
One of the reasons the district was able to survive the pandemic is because it was built on a philosophy of accountability and accountability at every level.
This was the first time in Buffalo’s history that the district has actually met the requirements to be considered for a federal grant to help pay for a new building and to expand a building.
This was done to help the district’s students and staff, and also to help them.
It’s clear that the students and their families have been suffering under the current administration, and there are signs that this administration will do whatever it takes to help students and families.
On February 10, 2018, Buffalo Public Education President Brian Williams made a brief appearance at a press conference in Buffalo to discuss the district.
In a press release, Williams said, “I am personally committed to making this district stronger for all of the students in our district and to ensuring that students receive the best education possible.”
Buffantown, which was home to many Buffalo Public schools, is now the site of a federal lawsuit against the district for its handling of the pandemics outbreak.
My story is not uncommon.
My parents moved from Buffalo to New York in the mid-1990s, and when they moved to New Jersey in the early 2000s, they had to choose between the state of New Jersey and Buffalo Public.
The choice was easy.
Buffalo Public was a better option.
I have the opportunity to be an active member of the community here in Buffalo, and it’s also a better choice for my children.
Despite the hardships that have been facing Buffalo Public students, I know that many people have struggled with their own hardships as well.
I know from personal experience that it’s a very difficult thing to face when you’re not a white, male, rich kid from the suburbs, but when you have a child of color, it’s even more difficult.
To be clear, I don’t blame people who were born here, I blame the district that didn’t help us.
I’m not sure I would have left if I had known about the risks and the challenges I faced, but I would’ve left anyway.
It would’ve been my own choice to leave.
I feel that it was the right choice to do so, but it’s not the right thing to do.
A week after the pandepemic, the Buffalo City Council approved $1 million in state aid to help schools and teachers who lost their jobs.
In Buffalo, the district and the state are supposed to be partnering to help people like me find jobs in other parts of the state.
But instead, the state has been spending money that is supposed to help us, and in the end, it is going to be used to help Buffalo Public’s students who have been impacted by the pandems.
