Carl Paladino still, "Mad as Hell"

Former Republican candidate for governor Carl Paladino  one of the speakers at the Buffalo Board of Education meeting last Wednesday  criticized the Board and threaten to mobilized the community to pressure the Buffalo Common Council to withhold funds from the schools. 
 The Buffalo News released his speech to the public,  where he criticized  their, "remorseless neglect of our public school children." And said the Board, "should be shamed for its functional paralysis and inability to implement change necessary to deal with core problems..."   
He criticized the Board for extending the contract of Dr. James A. Williams, Superintendent of the Buffalo Schools because he withheld  a letter Donald A. Ogilvie, Superintendent of Erie I BOCES had written critical of school operations.  When he wrote the letter to Superintendent Williams, Mr. Ogilvie was the "educational expert"  on the Joint Intervention Team as required by State law in the persistently lowest performing schools. Paladino called it "clearly fraud" when the superintendent failed to disclosed the letter to the board. He said, "the Superintendent should immediately be discharged for cause and the Board should commence a national search a high-quality replacement.
