WBFO’s Focus on Education 2014 ‘Year in Review’

WBFO News photo by Eileen Buckley

The education of children across this region has taken center stage in 2014, with attention on the rigorous Common Core Learn standards to boosting graduation rates. WBFO's Eileen Buckley complied an audio postcard of the various education stories our news team covered this past year as part of our Focus on Education reporting. 

A WNED|WBFO Reporting Initiative

There is perhaps no issue more important to the future of Buffalo and Western New York than education.  WNED/WBFO's Focus on Education initiative is a two-year reporting and outreach project that will examine the many challenges facing schools today. From the poor graduation rate in Buffalo to the controversy over Common Core Learning Standards throughout Western New York, our comprehensive coverage will inform and engage the community as it looks for the best solutions for students. 

We will also examine the many efforts underway to improve education in Buffalo and Western New York, including programs such as Promise Neighborhood and Say Yes to Education

Focus on Education is part of American Graduate - a public media initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
