Stop sending bad signals to Buffalo schoolchildren

Perhaps if we are so concerned about improving the performance of Buffalo schoolchildren we could start with improving morale. It must be difficult to hear your schools continuously being referred to as “The Failing System.” We are not providing our children with the most basic tool to succeed, a feeling of pride and self esteem. When children feel good about their learning environment they tend to become invested in it and want to help with its growth. The line of a beautiful song states: “Careful the things you say, children will listen.”
