The Buffalo News published a story about Superintendent Kriner Cash’s reform agenda yesterday. In the article, the reporter talked about Cash’s goals to revitalize Buffalo Public Schools, “bringing every school to its fullest potential.”
The reporter also mentioned a fairly recent incident at a Buffalo Parent Teacher Organization. At the meeting, which Cash briefly attended, he spoke to attendees and made a controversial comment that caused one member to leave the room, and a few others upset. He used the word “dregs” in reference to city teachers.
Karibu News attended and recorded the meeting. For his exact words and so the public knows what was said, and in the context it was said, refer to the full audio below.
