What is wrong with Oregon's education system?

October 13th, 2014

Oregon has much to recommend it as a living destination: communities of socially and environmentally conscious residents; easy access to a multitude of outdoors activities from mountaintop to ocean; rich tech and creative services industries; an affordable cost of living; and hip, progressive metro areas lauded around the nation.
But the quality of its primary education is not something to boast about.
In the past year alone, The Oregonian's Betsy Hammond has written plenty about Oregon's lacking academic climate. Scores and studies have repeatedly pointed to the state's education deficiencies, from test results to achievement rankings, from bureaucratic self-examination to inefficient rural district spending and abysmal absenteeism.
