The bottom line is that the legislature and the citizens of Oregon have failed the children of Oregon. We should not be cutting the quality of education in times of economic downfall, or at any time. We need a long term stable funding model for public education.
Allowing districts to cut these programs does not help students. It may save a very small amount of money, but at a much greater cost to students in most cases. In general I am in favor of giving the districts some flexibility, but it needs to be done as a broader reform. This bill amounts to a tacit recommendation that districts cut these programs in order to save money.
