BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A parents group says New York State needs to stop students from a charter school that’s closing from transferring into failing public schools in Buffalo.
Parents of these students are being told that if their children transfer into public schools, they can only enroll at schools that are among the lowest performing in the city.
The District Parent Coordinating Council is calling for the State Education Department to block those transfers from the Community Charter School.
Parent Shonique Loman said, “I don’t want my son in the public school system, where they’re failing, there is no superintendent, there’s so much chaos, chaos, watching the news is just really sad for these kids, and all the public schools you could choose are taken.”
The school year ends officially in Buffalo on Thursday.
