“It is time to move beyond the so-called last in, first out system of relying exclusively on seniority,” Mr. Cuomo said in a statement. “However, we need a legitimate evaluation system to rely upon.”
Mr. Cuomo’s budget would cut projected state funding to New York City schools by $1.4 billion, a reduction that Mr. Bloomberg has said would force him to lay off 4,600 teachers in order to balance the schools budget. Mr. Bloomberg reacted coolly to Mr. Cuomo’s proposal, saying the city needed more leeway now in determining who is laid off.
