The local teachers’ union in Buffalo has been fighting tooth and nail against public charter schools there. But at last they’ve found a choice they like…school uniforms. A principal there wants to institute a uniform policy; the head of the Buffalo teachers’ union is opposed.
Philip Rumore, president of the Buffalo Teachers Federation, said a mandatory uniform policy could be unfair to nearby residents who want to send their children to Highgate Heights but don’t agree with the dress code.
“I find that troubling,” he said. “I think people should have a choice.”
Supporters of public charter schools surely agree…
