An Oregon measure aimed at making it easier to pay for new school buildings goes before the Portland school board Monday.
Portland district staff have recommended board members support Ballot Measure 68 at their meeting tonight.
But it’ll be up to voters across Oregon to approve or reject the constitutional amendment, in May.
The measure would allow the Oregon legislature to issue bonds to match voter-approved school district construction bonds. The state’s involvement would be new.
It's never enough. I would love to have a reporter ask the public school teacher's "what per pupil funding is enough to do the job." We all know the answer: "how much will you give us."
During this election cycle ask your local candidate "how much is needed." Get a real dollar figure. No one will ever give one because then they wouldn't be able to ask for more.
