BUFFALO, N.Y. -With the Buffalo Public School district 2012 graduation rate falling to 46.8%, Two On Your Side decided to speak with the man in charge of the city about the problem.
Dr. Pamela Brown is the superintendent of schools and is hired by the school board but Mayor Byron Brown does inherit any problem that comes out of the school district.
On Tuesday, the mayor agreed to speak with Two On Your Side's Dave McKinley.
Mayor Brown said graduation rates "Shouldn't get worse at all. But the decision on whether the mayor can assume control or have greater responsibility in the schools happens in Albany."
