Issues

Furlough policy

In November 2013, Aument introduced one of three bills seeking to relax teacher furlough policies in light of budget deficits and economic necessity. "School districts are asking for flexibility in making furlough decisions," Aument said. The bill would attempt to keep teacher effectiveness and student achievement as the standards for furlough policy. "We should be focusing education policy on students and achievement," Aument said. "If there needs to be an economic furlough, we can all agree that it is in the best interest of students to protect our most effective educators."[1]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Pennsylvania scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
