Williams retires in September, with health care benefits for's over!

Buffalo School Board voted 7-2, to accept the resignation of Superintendent James A. Williams for retirement purposes, effective September 15, 2011. At large School Board Rep. Chris Jacobs thought the board could have done better because of the life-time health care benefits Williams obtains yearly, a costly expense for New York State taxpayers.. And so that ended the turbulent, embattled termination feud between the Buffalo Board of Education and Williams.
And a meeting has been scheduled for Monday at 4:30 PM to address the issues of the teachers Williams laid-off recently especially those at City Honors. Roslyn Taylor commented she had gotten reassurance from Williams some to be reinstated again.
