According to a Buffalo News report the "Buffalo city schools got more stimulus money than any other local entity — $51.7 million — and it prevented hundreds of layoffs, said Barbara Smith, the district’s chief financial officer. But that federal cash — offered to patch the huge holes the recession blew in state education budgets — is gone now. And the School Board last week agreed to a budget for the coming school year that cuts 355 jobs, including 145 teachers — although 41 of those teachers should see their jobs saved through grant funding."

Buffalo Police investigators expect to make an arrest soon into the cold-blooded murder of the Lafayette High School student suspended last Friday, June 11, 2010 from school. Jawaan Daniels was caught in a hallway sweep wandering in the hallways along with other students. Police disclosed that "a long-standing quarrel between Jawaan and another young man led to the shooting... retaliation, something that had occurred last year,” the police said Wednesday.
