Oregonians have spoken: When you stand with students and educators, voters will stand with you. Governor Brown and pro-public education candidates up and down the ballot won this election by standing up for students and pledging to fully fund our schools, lower class sizes, and support educators.
OEA will be working closely with elected officials to ensure they can deliver on these promises and increase school funding in 2019. Now is the time to finally raise significant revenue! Onward to the legislative session.
