The Condition of Oregon’s K-12 Education System

June 12th, 2013

betterschoolsbetteroregonThe Chalkboard Project’s vision is to see Oregon’s schools among the top ten in the nation as measured by student achievement. The report, “Better Schools, Better Oregon: The Conditions of K-12 Education,” is Chalkboard’s regular report on the state of education and progress toward becoming a top-ten state. The report draws upon national and state-level data as well as local district data.

This is the first time the report also highlights what’s working in Oregon and draws from promising outcomes in Chalkboard’s CLASS districts.

“While the news in the report is disappointing, Oregonians should remain hopeful,” said Sue Hildick, Chalkboard Project President. “The state is beginning to turn the lessons from CLASS into statewide policy through mentoring for new teachers, meaningful performance evaluations, teacher leadership opportunities, and professional development for educators to meet the needs of all Oregon students. We do believe that these investments in great teaching will turn the tide for Oregon.”
