That's a cop-out.
The truth is that the Buffalo schools have a large population of students without parents who care about their education. Jumping up and down, hollering and screaming that those parents 'must care" isn't going to get those kids educated. All it will do is create another generation of poorly educated parents who won't care about their kids getting an education.
We need to find a way to educate the kids with parents who don't care. Either that or we need to take those children from their existing parents and find them parents that do care about their education.
But insisting that the existing non-caring parents start caring about their children's education is worthless lip flapping.
