Rumore objects to Cuomo's choice of City Honors

By Robert J. McCarthy

Administration officials traveling with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo for his Thursday budget presentation were rather proud of their choice of City Honors School for the event.

But Buffalo Teachers Federation President Philip Rumore failed to share the enthusiasm Thursday. He wondered why the governor did not choose one of the many underachieving schools in Buffalo rather than the jewel of the system.

Rumore said he was invited to the event but did not attend.

"We're really proud of City Honors," he said. "But the rest of our schools are in desperate need of resources rather than more testing of students."
