New suspension policies in the buffalo public schools

Buffalo Public Schools to end out of school suspensions in the aftermath of the death of a high school student gunned down at a bus stop after his suspension from Lafayette High School last month.
While Rochester Public Schools with less students than Buffalo created an out-of-school suspension program with full-time instruction, costing nearly $5 million over two years ago under its new superintendent, the Buffalo Public schools version is $2 to 3 million only offering one hour to elementary and two hours to high school students because of budgetary reasons according to Will Keresztes a school official in the Buffalo News.
