Fact: Oregonians list smaller class sizes as a priority.
Fact: Oregonians want more options for students, not fewer.

Fact: There’s simply nothing left to cut without direct harm to our students and Oregon’s future.
It has been 27 years since Oregon began to roll back education funding (Measure 5). Now two generations have faced a deteriorating education system without a solution.
The proposed education budget continues this trend by offering even more cuts, and students are suffering.
Oregonians want an education that provides smaller class sizes and a restoration of programs and electives, but this budget falls short.
Oregon’s funding per student is 39th in the nation, putting us near the bottom. There is nothing left to cut and everything to lose. It’s time to fund a quality education for our students.
Another generation of Oregon children can’t wait.Tell your legislators to fund our schools now!
