Buffalo, NY – Turnaround plans for just three of seven persistently low achieving Buffalo Public schools were submitted late last week, sparking some tough comments from a parents group leader.

That is the topic in this week's edition of Press Pass, our ongoing series of conversations with area newspaper editors and reporters.

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley and Buffalo News City Hall reporter Brian Meyer discuss the controversy and what is ahead for the district and its troubled schools.
