OEA kicked off the Class Size Campaign last spring, and since then, thousands of OEA members have told their story about how systemic underfunding is negatively affecting public education. Heart-wrenching stories about ballooning class size, increasing workload, and cut programs continue to be the most powerful tool in describing the real effect of Oregon’s failure to adequately fund public schools.
During their Sept. 21 meeting, the OEA Board of Directors voted overwhelmingly to build a campaign that will allow Oregon voters to demand new revenue through a ballot initiative. With their action, “The OEA will proceed with a statewide organizing campaign built around member commitment in order to achieve revenue reform,” OEA’s Board of Directors will be working with you, your colleagues, and your local association for commitment to move this campaign forward.
