Parents' Group leader discusses low performing school

By Bert Gambini


Buffalo, NY – The District Parent Coordinating Council in the Buffalo School System is planning a one-day boycott this Monday to protest what they see as the District's lingering problems.

They'll attempt to keep as many kids as possible out of the classroom. It is a tactic that has its share of critics. Yet the Vice President of the Parents' Group, Sam Radford, says it's an idea that has been carefully explored.

WBFO's Bert Gambini spoke with Radford about the boycott and the Council's diligence, which he said is more about a shift in focus than anything else.
