The Buffalo Teachers Federation Releases ‘Disturbing’ School Safety & Unacceptable Learning Conditions Survey - Calls For ‘Mandatory Intervention Services’ For Suspended Students To ‘Prevent Future’ Suspensions

(BUFFALO, NEW YORK) - The Buffalo Teachers Federation (BTF) has released a disturbing School Safety & Unacceptable Learning Conditions Survey, and in the process is calling for mandatory intervention services for suspended students to prevent future suspensions

“The ‘very disturbing response from hundreds ‘of Teachers (749), from (61 of the 76) schools/sites over a short period of time, is an ‘urgent call for immediate action’ by the Superintendent and Board of Education ‘to ensure that suspended students are provided with intervention services to resolve and correct the issues that gave rise to the suspension,’” BTF President Phil Rumore said.. 

The questions and teacher responses were as follows:

Disruptive Student Behavior in my school is: 17.01 % - Dealt with quickly and appropriately; 42.82 % - Dealt with inconsistently and as such is problematic, thus leading to continued disruptive student behavior and unacceptable learning conditions; 18.33 % - Is not dealt with appropriately leading to increased disruptive student behavior and unacceptable learning conditions; 14.08 % - Is almost out of control leading to increased disruptive student behavior and unacceptable learning conditions; and 07.77 %- Out of control.

Please note that: Only 17.01 % of the respondents report that disruptive student behavior is “Dealt with quickly and appropriately;” 83.00 % of the Teachers responded that disruptive student behavior is leading to unacceptable learning conditions for the students seeking to learn; and 21.85 % of the respondents report that disruptive student behavior “Is almost out of control leading to increased disruptive student behavior and unacceptable learning conditions” and disruptive student behavior is “Out of Control.”
