Yes on Oregon Measure 98: Dropout Prevention and College Readiness Programs

Oregon
Measure 98 would require the Oregon State Legislature to fund dropout-prevention and career and college readiness programs in Oregon high schools. High school students, especially those from low-income or rural backgrounds, often never learn about the wide array of paths available to them to lead a satisfying and well-paying career. Students who fall behind often aren’t provided the resources to help them turn their education around. Measure 98 does not create any new taxes or take away money from other programs. It directs new state revenue to three things: career tech education, college-level classes and high school dropout prevention. The trajectory we put our students on in high school can often determine where they end up later in life. It’s up to use to promise bright futures for all students, especially those from underserved communities. Join the Fight & Learn More
