Icon: Thumbs upPeople for this say:
The Legislature will send state money to school districts for education. The school districts have to make a plan to start or expand career and technical education programs, college level programs in high school, and dropout-prevention programs. Oregon has one of the worst graduation rates in the country. This will help Oregon’s low graduation rate. This will help students get better jobs. Oregonians will get high skilled jobs, instead of people from other states.
