A final parting gift

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but their absence is even more telling.

At least when it comes to the hallways of the Buffalo school district offices.

Visitors to the district’s City Hall headquarters likely noticed what amounted to a museum of sorts showcasing former Superintendent Pamela C. Brown.

Brown sitting at a student’s desk in a classroom. Brown at a groundbreaking. Brown with state education commissioner John King.

It’s not unusual for districts to have a picture of their leader displayed somewhere. But Brown seemed to appear in an inordinate number.

Until this week.

Barely a week after she negotiated her buyout agreement with the school board, all that’s left are noticeably barren spots on the walls and the anchors that hung the photos.

Brown apparently asked if she could take the photos – each of them several feet wide – with her.

Figuring that, well, they didn’t need them anymore the district allowed her to take them with her.
