Paladino should not have been unseated
I am appalled that Carl Paladino was thrown off the Buffalo School Board by State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia! This is the only member who actually cared about the children.
He has made racist remarks about the Obamas, but that shouldn’t factor in this decision, although I’m sure that was a reason for his ouster.
People have a right to know what goes on “behind closed doors,” because this affects their children. Paladino was also in favor of charter schools, which kept the School Board’s kettle boiling. Board members are looking for a replacement. I’m sure they’ll find one soon that caters to their wishes. Meanwhile, the “Phil and Barbara” show must go on!
I also find it very coincidental that this decision came down right after the Charlottesville, Va., riots. Hopefully Paladino can return to his spot on the board. These kids deserve better than what they get without him on the board.
