PUBLIC HEARINGS WILL SOLICIT INPUT ON PENNSYLVANIA STATE BOARD OF
 EDUCATION'S PROPOSED CHANGES TO LEARNING OUTCOME GUIDELINES
 HARRISBURG, Pa., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- State Rep. Ron Cowell (D-Allegheny), today announced a series of public hearings across the state to solicit input on the State Board of Education's proposed changes to the state's learning outcome guidelines.
 Cowell, chairman of the House Education Committee, said the panel has scheduled five hearings in the next several weeks to give the public the opportunity to comment on proposed reforms. The proposed changes in the curriculum regulations would shift emphasis from time requirements to student outcome performance in the state's basic education system. These proposed student learning outcomes, which will be the subject of the public hearings, are intended to specify what the commonwealth expects students to learn and be able to do.
 The panel welcomes oral and written testimony from concerned individuals. Those interested in testifying should contact Corinne Brandt, research analyst for the House Education Committee, at 717-783-1905.
 Following is the schedule of hearings:
