There is perhaps no issue more important to the future of Buffalo and Western New York than education. WNED/WBFO’s Focus on Education initiative is a two year reporting and outreach project that will examine the many challenges facing schools today. From the poor graduation rate in Buffalo to the controversy over Common Core Learning Standards throughout Western New York, our comprehensive coverage will inform and engage the community as it looks for the best solutions for students.
We will also examine the many efforts underway to improve education in Buffalo and Western New York, including programs such as Promise Neighborhood and Say Yes to Education.
This exciting initiative is funded by a grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and is part of American Graduate – Let’s Make It Happen! – a public media initiative to address the drop out crisis.Focus on Education stories.
