OSBA town halls will support advocacy for education funding
Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Starting Jan. 10 in Pendleton, OSBA will host a series of evening town halls as part of “Oregonians for Student Success,” a campaign for adequate and stable Oregon K-12 school funding.
Area legislators and local school board members will moderate discussions on education and answer questions from the audience. Attendees will be able to sign up for the campaign so they can join in the push for increased Oregon education spending.
The first town hall will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Jan. 10 at Blue Mountain Community College. The town halls will run through the beginning of the legislative session and into March, with at least 10 events all over the state.
OSBA has committed to revenue reform and cost containment advocacy in the 2019 Legislature. The town halls will show “A Time to Listen,” a potent documentary on Oregon’s chronic education funding problem and the legislative drive for a solution. The video is part of “The Promise of Oregon” education advocacy campaign that OSBA began in 2014.
