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 reporting and outreach project that examines the many challenges facing schools today. From the poor graduation rate in Buffalo to the controversy over Common Core Learning Standards, our comprehensive coverage informs and engages the community as it looks for solutions for students.
WBFO’s newsroom has produced hundreds of stories featuring a cross-section of topics and diversity in education in the Western New York community. Recognized by community stakeholders, WBFO’s Focus on Education has been a participant in educational panels and events to inform the public about what students need to graduate.
We 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 dropout crisis.
