What's happened here in Buffalo was planned since Williams hit town. This is how you kill a district, never mind a high school:
1. Close any alternative school opportunities and keep the troublesome one percent monopolizing an entire school.
2. Place failed leaders in new leadership roles instead of firing them.
3. Play politics with poor kids.
4. Force scripted curriculum down teachers, children, parents' and principals' throats.
5. Play hot potato with troubled kids.
6. Pump up the Special Education population in the "failing" schools, even though teachers & admin still perform miracles.
7. Test. Test more. Force kids with Low IQs to take tests to make them feel inept then pour money into Bullying workshops.
8. Blame teachers. More money spent on Bullying.
9. Arbitrarily raise Regents scores by 10 points with no explanation.
10. "Fire" the bad guy, the fall guy, the genius, Williams. Extend a boatload of cash his way so it eases his conscience.
