Michael Rebell Campaign for Fiscal Equity former director on closing down of CFE offices

Commissioner John B. King suspended the SIG funds of several public school districts in New York that included Buffalo City School District. Never mind Buffalo had already fronted some of the money hired nearly 70  to work in the six struggling schools including attendance teachers.

"That children's education rights cannot be temporarily suspended is not only a matter of law but also of common sense: A child who misses her opportunity to learn to read during the critical early school years forever falls behind. A teenager who drops out of high school rarely will return to complete his education. This is especially true for the low-income and minority-group students whose educational needs are the greatest and who tend to be the most detrimentally affected by service reductions.”  Michael Rebell
