The Buffalo schools superintendent now has expanded power to change the union contract at 15-city schools in receivership. In this week's Press Pass WBFO's Eileen Buckley and Buffalo News Education Reporter Tiffany Lankes discuss how this is expected to end up in a court battle between the Buffalo Teachers Federation and District. 

Both the Buffalo Teachers Federation and New York State United Teachers tell WBFO News they expect the lawsuit  to be filed by mid-January.  You can read Lankes story on the Buffalo News website. The article includes a map of the struggling schools under receivership.
