    Re: “DOE notes high pre-k suspensions

    I corrected this blog because the original version incorrectly implied that the RCSD suspends its pre-K students. For added clarification, the RCSD provided me with this statement: "We do not suspend prekindergarten students from our Universal Prekindergarten Program in the Rochester City School District. A child can't be expelled from the Universal Prekindergarten program either. We do have a safety procedure that is rarely utilized in extreme cases where after a series of steps have been taken, including parent notification, a student can be asked to refrain from attending the program for a maximum of five days while steps are taken to put in place a safety plan to address serious safety concerns. This is all done in collaboration with the parent." The statement is from Tricia Cruz, a district spokesperson.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Re: “Rochester school district may lease building space to charter

    Gotta Say It:

    There is some controversy about 690 St. Paul. The facility is shown as a Brownfield cleanup site on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's website. Remedial work was done to the site to reduce potential problems, but public safety continues to be a concern for some people.

    Re: “Attack on White boomerangs

    Hey Michael,
    You're right; I meant to correct that in my first draft and it slipped past me. Thanks so much for catching it.

    Re: “DINING REVIEW: Esan Thai

    Esan is one of Rochester's little pearls. The food is wonderful, the environment is simple, and the owners treat you like you're a member of their family. There are many choices in this area, but only one Esan.

    Re: “Reading program helps stave off the 'summer slide'

    Yugoboy:

    First, thanks for your comment. In answer to the question you pose, no one will like the answer, but money is an issue. Elaine Spaull went and shook the trees so to speak for more financial help this year, which is surprising since the program's coordinators have compiled some good research from the program that's quite supportive. Students from poor households are lucky to have one or two books in the home, while middle class suburban children are frequently provided with hundreds. And children who often don't receive gifts or items in the mail take a special interest in something that is addressed to them personally. It's hard to imagine that something so subtle can have such a big impact.

    Re: “"RuPaul's Drag Race" Season 5 Reunion: The winner revealed!

    I was rooting for Alaska, too. Out of all the queens, she seemed to grow the most. She's not a comic, she's just naturally funny. I'm happy that Jinkx won because there's a lot of talent there that could go in all sorts of directions. Jinkx was also a little kinder and not as ruthless as some of the queens (Roxxxy!). And Lineysha, girl really? She actually returned to the show only to tell Ru that she still didn't know who Diana Ross is! Considering she's one of Ru's inspirations, she could have Googled her or faked it or something!
