Now the legislature has an opportunity to spend money intelligently instead of just paying off political debts.
Education in Oregon has plenty of money if we look at what is spent in other parts of the country per student to produce better results. As schools are closed and teachers are cut we should look where the real unnecessary money is being spent. Look at how many administrators are being eliminated. I was visiting San Diego a few years ago and one high school district had just refused to increase teacher salaries but then granted the administrators a 20 % increase. These administrators were making the equivalent of 7 teacher salaries and had $300,000 public relation people on their staff. Look at how the diocese of New York runs the parochial schools in New York City with far fewer administrators than the public schools less cost better education should be the goal.
Redistricting. reject racial and ethnic based districts or make a white district state wide, a black district state wide etc. Sounds pretty racist to have a "Hispanic" district. Let people live together and have the same goals opportunities and educational excellence.
