A Possible Education Agenda for Oregon

 

By Don Crawford, Ph.D.

Governor Kitzhaber’s takeover of education in Oregon will cost hundreds of millions of dollars without making it better.  Four simple initiatives could do far more to improve education while saving money for taxpayers. Sounds implausible, I know, but it isn’t more money that’s needed to improve K-12 education in Oregon.   Read More

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

ESEA Flexibility

Five Key Areas of Effectiveness Defined

Effective schools and districts perform well in each of five key areas, which closely align to the
USED seven turnaround principles. Oregon’s definitions of the five key areas, and
corresponding turnaround principles, are provided below. Oregon educators consider it
important that turnaround principle five (v) – using data to inform instruction and for continuous
improvement, including providing time for collaboration on the use of data – be woven
throughout all of the five key areas. Therefore, this turnaround principle is not listed separately.

KNOW YOUR LEGISLATOR!

As a charter school it is VERY necessary to know personally who represents your district.  We encourage you all to invite them to your school for lunch and a tour.
