School Board needs to put pettiness aside, get to work

After reading the article about the May 7 Buffalo Board of Education meeting, I was amazed and disappointed at the pettiness of board member Florence Johnson. The remark she made about members Jason McCarthy and Carl Paladino as “two fools together” was very inappropriate and unprofessional. It’s one thing to make that remark behind closed doors in executive session, but to voice it in open session was wrong.

Let’s hope with the election of the new School Board members, the board can get beyond the pettiness and get to the business of making the Buffalo Public Schools the once great school system it was 30 years ago. We can only hope.
