News education reporter talks Buffalo schools on Capitol Pressroom

I joined Albany Times Union education reporter Scott Waldman on the Capitol Pressroom today.

Host Susan Arbetter had us cover quite a bit of ground in half an hour: the future of Buffalo Superintendent James Williams; the English and math test scores that were released this week; charter school vs. traditional public school performance on those tests; the property tax cap; teacher evaluations; and what the coming school year may bring.

Listen to a podcast of the show at http://blogs.wcny.org/the-capitol-pressroom-for-august-9-2011/.
