School Board to Consider Limiting Public Comment

BUFFALO, N.Y.- The Buffalo School board is considering making a change to its meeting policy that has some parents and others in the community upset.

School Board Member Ralph Hernandez says the school board administration has proposed some changes to the public comment portion of the school board meetings.

Wednesday evening, the board will discuss decreasing the number of speakers from thirty to twenty, and limiting each topic to five speakers.

There is currently already a three minute time limit in place, and anyone who wants a chance to address the board must sign up by calling the district office before noon on the Monday before the meeting.

Hernandez says the board's administration has suggested the changes, in part because of the past several meetings they've seen the same groups monopolizing the speakers segment.

The Future Of Zoos: An Important Symposium Convenes In WNY

 

"We all have in us this thing called biophilia, the kind of love of nature, and zoos are kind of a central gathering point for communities to connect with nature."

Zoos have been part of the fabric of human society for centuries. From early menageries to modern day facilities, the chance to see an exotic animal has been a captivating and enriching experience.

But that experience has not always been the same for the animals themselves. The past, present, and especially the future of zoos was the topic of a recent seminar held at Canisius College and the Buffalo Zoo.

Visionaries from around the world gathered in Western New York to discuss a variety of topics from architecture to ethics, and Canisius seemed a natural to play host.
