On March 17 and 21 the Education Subcommittee of the Ways and Means Committee discussed the Governor’s proposals for moving Oregon to an education system that cares more about outcomes that seat time and that abandons Oregon’s siloed approach of setting budgets for PreK, K-12, higher education and community colleges for a 0-20 education budget system.   It’s a major transformation, but it is necessary for the health of our communities and economy.

Check out the presentation to the Education Subcommittee of Ways and Means by Nancy Golden, Education Policy Advisor to the Governor, Duncan Wyse, Chair of the Governor’s work group on education budgeting, and John Tapogna, Managing Partner of ECONorthwest.
