The director of the Oregon Department of Education just wrote an Op-Ed drawing a direct line from the growing graduation rates to programs like Measure 98 and the Student Success Act.
We say it all the time, but this is the ultimate endorsement of the success of those programs. He wrote:
“There’s no doubt that recent programs aimed at helping specific groups of students is a factor. Measure 98, passed in 2016, is helping schools expand CTE programs, college credit opportunities and dropout prevention. In 2019, lawmakers passed the historic Student Success Act that provides additional funding to schools to target historically underserved students.”
Read on and know that we’ll continue advocating for investments that will clear the path for Oregon students.
