We have taken an unwavering position opposing the idea of a "uniform curriculum" in the "several grades for which they were established" to be installed in the county-wide school district as proposed in Rep. Tim Mahoney's former legislation, House Bill 351.

Common Core Curriculum danger ahead

The PA Economy League Report is a must-read on the history, current law, etc. regarding municpality and school district mergers and consolidations.

In researching the issue of countywide school consolidation as proposed by PA state Rep. Tim Mahoney, we have had cause to focus heavily on Fay-Penn Economic Development Council and its Strategic Plan for Fayette County known interchangeably as Fayette Forward and Vision 20/20.

It is our opinion, a strong opinion, that Rep. Mahoney's Plan is not only inclusive of the approach to education Fay-Penn takes, one larger unified approach, with a call for one cyber school, one vocational-technical school, and recommendation toward uniform curriculum.  Rep. Mahoney's Plan and Fay-Penn's Strategic Plan are undeniably one and the same.

We are taking some time to explore Rep. Tim Mahoney's newsmaking comments here:

Mahoney said EMG was selected to perform the study because both Boyer and Stainbrook are already familiar with the county's districts, having performed independent studies in each in the past.

"I think that brings a little credibility and more fluency where we can try to do this study in an open and honest way to get the honest numbers to show what the honest outcome will be," Mahoney said"

We are taken with what isn't said, and that's why we are here.

And that's why we are highlighting this page: PA Dept. of Ed. Retirees Now Education Management Group Consultants to Conduct Study


Rep. Tim Mahoney's HB 351 needs further attention as we discuss on the site.
The measure is not designed exclusively for 'Administrative' consolidation purposes as we discuss here. 
The legislation is unable to mandate any budget cuts for existing teacher salary contracts, and Rep. Mahoney has already mentioned salaries would be equalized across the countywide district.  We know where that is headed. 
The measure cannot guarantee once the independent districts are consolidated into one countywide governing body, they will indeed keep local identity.  Rep. Mahoney has already mentioned "some schools will be closed." 
The measure cannot guarantee costs per pupil will decrease as a result of consolidation of smaller districts into one larger unit.  Rep. Mahoney fails to mention the Standard and Poor Study and its breakdown of when costs rise.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 PA State Rep. Mahoney School Consolidation Plan includes Uniform Curriculum

Uniformity in the Course of Study in the Several Grades

Text of Mahoney Legislation HB 351

Section 1081. Duties of Superintendents.--The duties of district superintendents shall be to visit personally as often as practicable the several schools under his supervision, to note the courses and methods of instruction and branches taught, to give such directions in the art and methods of teaching in each school as he deems expedient and necessary, [and] to report to the board of school directors any insufficiency found, so that each school shall be equal to the grade for which it was established and that there may be, as far as practicable, uniformity in the courses of study in the schools of the several grades, to hire professional, temporary professional or nonprofessional employes and such other duties as may be required by the board of school directors.
