I have never lived outside the city of Buffalo. I've been an honor student throughout my elementary school, highschool and college years. And my neighborhood isn't on the news every few months having it's heroin epidemic reported about. Stop being so ignorant and snobbish just because you reside in Hamburg. Most Hamburg residents were once Buffalonians and their neighborhoods are no different than north Buffalo or south Buffalo, your taxes are just higher.If the teachers are required to live in the city you would have nothing but unqualified teachers that be as dumb as the superintendent of the buffalo schools

I didn't grow up in this area but, for a brief period of 3-4 years, I attended a suburban school. It was not a pleasant experience with some teachers/faculty because NONE of them looked like me. My daughter grew up here and educated in BPS, some teachers who didn't look like her treated and spoke to her in a negative way, at least until I, informed them of what my expectations were from her and my goals for her education; this was usually older teachers that did not look like her.
You have to teach the "whole person" fyi teaching is not throwing a pile of information at your student. You have to connect the student with the subject matter, bringing them to "understanding" of the subject. If a student cannot go home and complete their homework The Paycheck has NOT been Earned.

I currently teach at a middle school in China. I definitely don't look like my students. I'm not buying the argument that teachers have to look like their students, particularly as it flies in the face of the integration that was so hard fought for.

no one should have to live in buffalo.
especially teachers and cops.
its inhumane to expect people who deal with tards all day to have to live with them as well
