    just amazing the bufnews didn’t even find this valid to print. tis story is tell tale of the future, especially here under our very own tyrant drunk williams. should teachers be fired? yes. should unions compromise? yes? it’s shocking how uneducated the public is on education issues that are crumbling away before our eyes. remember this country was founded on public education (if anyone has forgotten that tiny fact), now that it’s problematic, and after a republican president finally put thousands of schools in the grave, now we are going with the privatization route doesn’t sound very american to me. Yes, lazy teachers should go, behold the beginning of the next generation of Black Lisitng, wait and see. Williams with his nasty arrogant hateful sidekick evil Falasade Oladele (which is not her birth name, she changed it to be more african, not a slave hand-me down), havebeen busy like little bees to destroy our public institutions here, to close them, re-label them, change the rulers, side step union rule, screw teachers and screw parents. It’s criminal. But, who cares, right? this is Buffalo. who gives a fucking shit? anyone?
