A good education is important to our young people having a good future. Working with the Buffalo Common Council, the Brown Administration provided over $1.6 million in funds to Say Yes Buffalo for scholarships and academic support.

In 2016, a record of nearly 2,000 students, in grades K-12, successfully completed Mayor Byron Brown’s Reading Rules! Kids Summer Reading Challenge. During his tenure as Mayor, nearly 13,000 Champion Readers in Buffalo have completed the challenge. Mayor Brown started the program 15 years ago when he was a New York State senator to help increase literacy in the Buffalo area.
