PA Ed Policy Roundup October 27, 2015:
Accountability? PA State Senate takes out $9 million loan and prepares to take two weeks off




HARRISBURG (OCTOBER 21, 2015) – The Campaign for Fair Education Funding today submitted a formal request to Gov. Tom Wolf and members of the General Assembly, urging them to promptly reach a budget agreement that enacts the funding formula adopted by the state Basic Education Funding Commission (BEFC) and increases basic education funding by at least $410 million.




Editorial: Time to level education funding field
Delco Times Editorial POSTED: 10/26/15, 6:27 PM EDT | UPDATED: 21 SECS AGO
The William Penn School District is not going away in their fight for a level playing field when it comes to funding education in this state.  Now it’s time for the rest of the state to stand beside them.  William Penn is one of six struggling school districts, along with Lancaster, Panther Valley, Greater Johnstown, Shenandoah and Wilkes Barre who finally had to go to court in an attempt to get what Pennsylvania was unable to deliver.  A fair shake when it comes to how education funding is shared in this state.  Too often children in struggling towns – like those in William Penn and the others – are penalized simply because of their zip code. They all share something: A disproportionate number of their students who live in depressed economic conditions, and a local economy that fails miserably to raise the kind of revenue needed to put them on a par with other districts just a few miles away.

Badams to talk budget impasse in Harrisburg
GoErie.com Staff report October 27, 2015 07:23 AM
ERIE, Pa. -- Erie schools Superintendent Jay Badams is taking his case to Harrisburg once again.  Badams will speak Wednesday morning in front of the Senate Democratic Policy Committee as part of a public hearing, "The Impact of Budget Challenges on Public Education in Pennsylvania."  Other scheduled speakers include Fran Burns, the chief operating officer of the School District of Philadelphia, and Anthony Pirrello, chief executive of the Montessori Regional Charter School and vice president of the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools.  Badams has sought emergency funding from the state to keep schools operating as the budget impasse continues.  "I'm just trying to keep our situation out there ... having four or five of us tell the same story should be instructive for our legislators," Badams said.

Senators call for continuous session until state budget agreement is reached
The PLS Reporter Author: Jason Gottesman/Monday, October 26, 2015
While the House added voting session days for the first two weeks of November, after session concludes this week in the Senate the chamber is not scheduled to return to voting session until November 16, when it will come into session for three days before recessing until early December.  Late last week, calls began to mount for the Senate to return to session until a budget agreement is reached, with Sen. Art Haywood (D-Montgomery) and Sen. John Blake (D-Lackawanna) calling on the body to remain in session continuously until that time.  “I must make a strong appeal and an ardent request to my friends and colleagues in Senate Republican leadership not to recess the Senate until a state budget has been approved by votes in both chambers of the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. Wolf,” Sen. Blake said in a Friday news release.

State Senate takes out $9 million loan to pay its employees
By Karen Langley / Post-Gazette Harrisburg Bureau October 26, 2015 11:21 PM
HARRISBURG — With no state budget in place months into Pennsylvania’s fiscal year, school districts and nonprofit organizations aren’t the only ones taking out loans. Much of the state General Assembly, too, has turned to the banks to make payroll.  The state Senate on Friday borrowed $9 million from PNC Bank so it could pay the salaries and benefits of both Republican and Democratic senators and staff, said Jennifer Kocher, spokeswoman for Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, R-Centre. Months after the July 1 start of the state’s fiscal year, the Senate reserves have been depleted, Ms. Kocher said.  “We would not have made payroll,” she said.  House Republicans, meanwhile, signed an agreement Oct. 19 for a $30 million line of credit and drew down $5 million that day, said Steve Miskin, spokesman for House Republicans. The money will pay for the salaries of House Republican members and staff, operations at district offices, and non-partisan House management functions, he said.

GOP budget discussions remain in a preliminary phase
The PLS Reporter Author: Jason Gottesman/Monday, October 26, 2015
For the second time in two weeks the leadership team from both Republican caucuses in the General Assembly held a closed-door meeting to try to reach a meeting of the minds on a new budget proposal and for the second week in a row they have yet to come to a lock-step agreement on how to move forward with a fresh budget plan.  While he said the discussions are going “very good,” Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-Jefferson) also said the talks are still “very preliminary.”  “We certainly are continuing to look for solutions to solve the budget and the parameters we’re working in are none of the broad-based tax increases,” he said.  He added there has been no agreement between Republicans on what other revenue could be used to support a final budget product.

Their view | Pennsylvania budget must break status quo
Centre Daily Times BY JEFF SHERIDAN October 27, 2015 
Jeff Sheridan is the press secretary for Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.
Gov. Tom Wolf’s budget rebuilds the middle class in Pennsylvania by prioritizing jobs that pay, schools that teach and government that works. Pennsylvania can have a bright future but we must move away from the failed status quo embraced by Republican leaders.
Pennsylvania is a place that is full of opportunity and it’s time to stop bowing down to special interests and Harrisburg insiders if we want to reach our commonwealth’s great potential. That is why Wolf’s budget fixes the deficit without gimmicks, cuts taxes to create jobs with good middle-class wages, makes gas companies pay their fair share so we can makes historic investments in education to prepare our kids for the jobs of tomorrow and provide property tax relief to middle-class homeowners and seniors. We need to think differently and do things differently to move Pennsylvania forward.

"Well it's very frustrating both for myself and our school board. As a matter of fact, one of our board members expressed at a meeting last week that its unusual that we’re four months past their deadline, but we always have to make June 30,” Young said.
PA Schools Suffer During Budget Impasse
PA schools are operating without funding for the past four months.
WETMTV.com By JESSICA BARD | jessicabard@wetmtv.com Published 10/26 2015 05:51PM Updated 10/26 2015 06:20PM
TOWANDA, PA (18 NEWS) - Educators across Pennsylvania are doing math of their own.The state budget was supposed to be passed by June 30. That equals about 4 months without state funding for public schools and some of them are struggling to even stay open.  "Erie is contemplating shutting schools down,” Troy School District Superintendent, Charles Young said.    Luckily, schools districts, like Towanda and Troy in the Northern Tier appear to be getting by.  "Luckily tax collections, realistic tax collections, come in at the beginning of the year. So right now, those are coming in well and that's what were using,” Towanda School District, Doreen Secor said.    "Right now, we're not really feeling the effects of the state budget yet. We have been able to operate up until this point on from local tax revenues and our reserve funds,” Young said.   They'll make it until about January until they'll have to consider securing a loan, but they're not happy about it.

Letter to the editor: It’s time for Pennsylvania lawmakers to compromise on budget
Delco Times POSTED: 10/27/15, 12:40 AM EDT | UPDATED: 2 HRS AGO
State Rep. Dwight Evans, D-203, of Philadelphia, is a veteran of more than 30 state budgets and is a former chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.
To the Times:
Even though he’s offered $1 billion in concessions, it’s been suggested that Gov. Tom Wolf’s stubbornness is the reason why Pennsylvania has stumbled almost four months without a budget.  That’s nonsense, as the budget blockade is rooted in mathematics not stubbornness.  Almost every state lawmaker will agree that a structural budget deficit exists — more than $1.2 billion now and likely more than $2 billion next year if action isn’t taken.  Despite the numbers, too few state lawmakers have been willing to compromise, even when they concede that GOP pension and liquor proposals — which became GOP must-haves only after Wolf won the governorship — will do little or nothing to bridge the growing revenue chasm.  Gov. Wolf has compromised on liquor and public pensions, issues that former Gov. Tom Corbett couldn’t advance despite enjoying ample Republican majorities in the House and Senate.  Gov. Wolf also has scaled back his proposals to expand the sales tax and have natural gas producers pay their fair share, as is the case in every other major gas-producing state.  In the House, Republicans and Democrats have offered compromise plans that call for modest increases in broad-based taxes and a moderate extraction tax.  Now, it’s time for leadership to realize that the “art of the deal” requires a similar tack toward the center to move to numbers-based deliberations and beyond partisan budget boilerplate.

"Another encouraging sign for the governor: When respondents were asked about their own budget priorities, their top pick — education funding — has been a key selling point for Mr. Wolf’s budget."
Poll results not expected to push either side to resolve state budget impasse
By Chris Potter / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette October 27, 2015 12:00 AM
Public support for Gov. Tom Wolf is softening as the state budget impasse stretches into its fourth month, says new polling from Robert Morris University. But the numbers likely won’t put much pressure on him, or on Republicans who control the state Legislature, to cut a deal.  Of the poll’s 523 Pennsylvania respondents, 49.3 percent said they had a “very” or “somewhat” favorable impression of the governor. That’s down from 54.8 percent in an RMU poll conducted in May. In addition, 35.2 percent of respondents now say they have an unfavorable impression of Mr. Wolf, up from 24.6 percent. The margin of error on such questions was 4.5 percentage points.  Even so, the numbers “are fairly strong for him, considering what’s happening,” said Robert Morris political science professor Philip Harold, who presided over the online survey.  The state has been operating without a budget since July. But 52.4 percent of poll respondents who have been personally affected by the budget impasse or knew someone who has, said they viewed Mr. Wolf favorably. And Mr. Harold noted that some erosion of support for Mr. Wolf was inevitable once his administration got underway.

Tax increase on sales or income seen as unlikely in Pennsylvania budget deal
Lehigh Valley Live By Associated Press  Follow on Twitter  on October 26, 2015 at 8:05 PM, updated October 26, 2015 at 8:06 PM
The Pennsylvania Senate's top Democrat says a final budget agreement probably won't include an increase in the sales or personal income tax that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf has sought to boost education funding and wipe out a deficit.  Still, Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa said Monday that differences remain between Democrats and Republicans in talks to end a four-month-old budget stalemate. He also says $2 billion in new revenue is necessary to correct a long-term deficit and ensure that schools and human services aren't squeezed next year.  He says Democrats still want substantial increases in aid to schools and human services to offset funding cuts under Wolf's predecessor, and they want a heftier tax on Marcellus Shale natural gas production.  The Legislature's Republican majority has opposed a tax increase on sales or income.

Pennsylvania budget victim of rigid factions
Morning Call Opinion by Bill White Contact Reporter October 26, 2015
My latest book on CD for in-car listening is the young-adult novel "Insurgent,"the sequel to the bestseller "Divergent." These were made into movies, and the third book in the trilogy — "Allegiant" — is scheduled to be released as a movie next year.  The books, set in post-apocalyptic Chicago, describe a society in which people are divided into five distinct factions or considered "factionless" outcasts. Members of these factions, which represent different character traits and attitudes, are expected to be loyal to their factions and act strictly in accordance with their beliefs.  I've been trying to figure out the best way to summarize the state budget crisis and other strange political events, and it occurred to me that the "Divergent" novels aren't a bad metaphor for the stark divisions that are dominating our political landscape in Pennsylvania and Washington.  Let's start with Harrisburg, where the budget impasse is nearing its fifth month and shows no sign of resolution.

Without a state budget, Pa.'s wealthiest counties making cuts, spending reserves
WHYY Newsworks BY LAURA BENSHOFF OCTOBER 26, 2015
Even if you're really good at budgeting, if your boss were four months late with your check you might have trouble paying your bills.  With no state budget nearly four months into the new fiscal year, even the wealthiest counties in Pennsylvania are making cuts or draining their rainy day funds to pay their bills.  While the effects are not as dramatic as taking out a $275 million loan to fund the state's largest school district, or contemplating cuts to Meals on Wheels, the budget impasse means social service vendors in Chester and Montgomery Counties are skating by with less.

East Penn School District prepares for possible extension of budget impasse
Kevin Duffy Special to The Morning Call October 27, 2015
What will East Penn School District do if budget isn't passed soon?  No one wants to think of the budget impasse in Harrisburg stretching into 2016, but administrators in the East Penn School District are doing just that.  Should the stalemate remain in place come February, it could mean a moratorium on new hires or the district borrowing money to stay afloat, the school board learned Monday.  "It will become critical for us in February," Superintendent Michael Schilder said.  That's because local earned income tax dollars collected throughout the year will be nearly tapped out by then with no money from the state coming in to help offset expenses, board President Alan Earnshaw said.

Retired educators may be answer to substitute teacher shortage
By Jan Murphy | jmurphy@pennlive.com Email the author | Follow on Twitter on October 26, 2015 at 6:49 PM
School districts around Pennsylvania are experiencing a shortage of qualified substitutes to fill in when teachers are absent, and some suggest retired teachers may be the answer to the problem.  School officials and lawmakers alike voiced support for an idea that would allow retired teachers to work a limited number of days every year without disrupting their pension benefits at Monday's joint House and Senate education committees.  State Education Secretary Pedro Rivera also indicated he was on board with that idea.  "I would love to have the conversation," Rivera told lawmakers. "I understand there are other commissions and other perspectives that have to become part of the conversation but strictly from a teaching and learning perspective and from the need perspective, it's a great conversation for us to have."

Pa. schools struggle to find substitute teachers; Unfilled spots doubled at Penn Manor last year
Lancaster Online by Kara Newhouse Staff Writer October 27, 2015
The lack of a state budget isn't the only challenge for Pennsylvania's public schools right now.
A shortage of substitute teachers has hit unprecedented levels, education leaders told the state Senate Education Committee in a hearing on Monday.  "In my nine years as a building level principal, I can count on one hand the number of days in which I had to scramble to arrange classroom coverage, or cover a classroom myself as a principal due to substitute shortages. Today, the realities are quite different," said Penn Manor Superintendent Mike Leichliter, who testified at the hearing in Harrisburg.  Leichliter reported that in 2013-14, Penn Manor had 116 classroom vacancies that went unfilled. In 2014-15, unfilled vacancies more than doubled to 286. This year, the numbers so far "are already trending slightly ahead of last year’s statistics for this same period."  Similar situations are playing out in other states, where school officials say job seekers who might have settled for a part-time job during the recession became less inclined to do so as the unemployment rate improved, according to the Huffington Post.

At sunset of term, Mayor Nutter reflects on his ambitious education agenda
WHYY Newsworks BY KEVIN MCCORRY OCTOBER 26, 2015
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter set an ambitious agenda for schools in his 2008 inauguration speech: promising to cut in half the number of drop outs, while doubling the number of Philadelphians who hold college degrees — both by 2015.   "I'm asking you to join me in the greatest American city turnaround that anyone has seen in the last 50 years. Ladies and gentlemen, I've laid out for you: this is the new Philadelphia," said Nutter during that speech.  Nutter will reflect on public education and how much progress his administration made toward those goals during a keynote speech Tuesday morning at 11 at WHYY.


Urging Students to Apply to College, New York City Will Make SAT Free for Juniors
New York Times By ELIZABETH A. HARRIS OCT. 26, 2015
As part of a push to encourage more students to apply to college, New York City will begin offering the SAT free to all public school juniors, Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña announced on Monday. The test will be given during the school day — not on a Saturday, as is now the common practice.  Education officials said that by removing barriers to entry — like the required fee and the very act of signing up — the hope is that students who might not otherwise have taken the test will do so.

Obama meets with educators to talk about standardized testing
Washington Post By Lyndsey Layton and Emma Brown October 26 at 2:05 PM   
Bootsie Battle-Holt, a middle school math teacher from Los Angeles, found herself sitting on a couch in the Oval Office on Monday morning, telling President Obama about the barrage of tests that she is required to administer to her students.  “He said that he knows for sure at this point that many of our students are being overtested, and he’s dedicated to a plan to mitigate that,” said Battle-Holt, one of two teachers invited to meet with Obama, along with a cadre of federal, state and city education officials.  The private meeting came two days after Obama acknowledged that his policies have helped lead to overtesting in the nation’s public schools and pledged to reduce it.

Where did Obama administration’s 2 percent cap on standardized testing come from? You won’t believe it. (Or maybe you will.)
Washington Post Answer Sheet Blog By Valerie Strauss October 26 at 2:04 PM  
You won’t believe this. Wait. Maybe you will.
The Obama administration has issued a Testing Action Plan that it says should help reduce over-testing in public schools. That plan includes a cap of 2 percent on the classroom time students spend on mandated standardized tests. The plan says:
Time-limited: While it is up to states and districts how to balance instructional time and the need for high-quality assessments, we recommend that states place a cap on the percentage of instructional time students spend taking required statewide standardized assessments to ensure that no child spends more than 2 percent of her classroom time taking these tests. Parents should receive formal notification if their child’s school exceeds this cap and an action plan should be publicly posted to describe the steps the state will take to review and eliminate unnecessary assessments, and come into compliance. States and school districts should carefully consider whether each assessment serves a unique, essential role in ensuring that students are learning.
The 2 percent is not much less than the 2.3 percent that a new two-year studyon standardized testing says kids now spend on these mandated exams, a figure deemed excessive by the report issued by the nonprofit Council of the Great City Schools. Is 2 percent a wholesale change from 2.3 percent?

Reform Movement Reacts to Obama Administration Statement, School Chiefs Survey on Testing Overkill
FairTest Submitted by fairtest on October 25, 2015 - 10:28am 
The Obama Administration’s weekend statement calling for “fewer and smarter” tests “belatedly admits that high-stakes exams are out of control in U.S. public schools but does not offer meaningful action to address that very real problem,” according to the National Center for Fair & Open Testing (FairTest), a leader of the country’s rapidly growing assessment reform movement.
FairTest Public Education Director Bob Schaeffer explained, “The new Council of Great City Schools study to which the Obama Administration responded, reinforces widespread reports by parents, students, teachers, and education administrators of standardized testing overuse and misuse. Documenting testing overkill is, however, just the first step toward assessment reform.”

Network for Public Education Fund Response to Obama Administration Statement on Testing
Date:  October 26, 2015
This weekend the Obama Administration released a statement calling for states to “cap testing” time in an effort to stop the parental outrage against annual, high-stakes testing. The suggested 2% cap represents nearly 24 hours of state-mandated standardized testing, for students as young as 8 years of age. To put that time into perspective, the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) represents less than 6 hours of testing.  The Network for Public Education (NPE) is disappointed by the limited response to what it views as a national education crisis.

"Before the Obama administration coerced more than two-thirds of the states into adopting valued-added teacher evaluations, around 20% of educators and their students were subject to high stakes testing. The administration gave states an offer they couldn't refuse and demanded that they create a score for virtually every teacher in the country.  That is why NCLB was destructive -- why the harm done by teach-to-the-test increased dramatically under Obama. Almost every public school student was required to be tested or to have his education altered to generate a punitive metric for holding adults accountable."
How Should Educators Respond to the Obama Administration's Concession on Test and Punish?
Huffington Post by John Thompson 10/25/2015 2:36 pm EDT Updated: 10/25/2015 7:59 pm EDT
The outgoing secretary of education, Arne Duncan, now admits, "I can't tell you how many conversations I'm in with educators who are understandably stressed and concerned about an overemphasis on testing in some places and how much time testing and test prep are taking." Duncan does so as the Obama administration'sTesting Action Plan now invites states to correct its biggest education debacle, the nonstop testing that has sucked the oxygen out of schools.
The timing couldn't be better for Oklahoma, and I'm sure most other states will jump at the chance to free themselves from the Duncan/Obama imposition of the "junk science" known as value-added evaluations. On the eve of Oklahoma's deadline for determining whether to dump the quantitative portion of its Teacher and Leader Effectiveness (TLE) system, the Obama administration is backing away from its once-clear demand that test score growth must be included in holding individuals accountable.

Rep. Paul Ryan Close to Taking Over as Speaker: Here's His K-12 Record
Education Week Politics K-12 Blog By Andrew Ujifusa on October 26, 2015 6:59 AM
After some tricky political negotiations, Rep. Paul Ryan is poised to become the next Speaker of the House of Representatives. So what does the Wisconsin Republican's record indicate he could do regarding education policy?  There's the immediate and momentous question of how he'll deal with reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The political climate in Congress could make it tough for a new speaker to put a bill on the floor that will need support from Democrats to pass. But Ryan's connections with the legislation's sponsors, his distate for the Obama administration's ESEA waivers, and his record as a deal maker opens up the possibility that he'll move a compromise forward. More on all that below.   Ryan, the chairman of the House budget committee, has also pushed to reform student loans for low-income borrowers. And he backed K-12 choice on the 2012 campaign trail, when he was the GOP nominee for vice president, and Mitt Romney's running mate.

Does the Constitution guarantee an “equal education” to every child? What do the U.S. and Pennsylvania Constitutions say about school choice, teacher tenure, standardized testing, and more? The Constitution Center hosts two conversations exploring these questions.
In the first discussion, education policy experts—Donna Cooper of Public Citizens for Children and Youth, Mark Gleason of the Philadelphia School Partnership, Deborah Gordon Klehr of the Education Law Center, and Ina Lipman of the Children's Scholarship Fund Philadelphia—examine the state of Philadelphia public education, what an "equal education" in Philadelphia would look like, and their specific proposals for getting there. They also explain what, if anything, the Pennsylvania state constitution says about these questions, and how state government interacts with local government in setting education policy.
In the second discussion, James Finberg of Altshuler Berzon and Joshua Lipshutz of Gibson Dunn—two attorneys involved in Vergara v. California, a landmark dispute over the legality of teacher retention policies—present the best arguments on both sides and discuss what's next in the case. They also explain what the U.S. Constitution and major Supreme Court cases like Brown v. Board of EducationSan Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez and Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1 say about education and our national debates.
