John Kitzhaber's once-powerful education board will die

The Oregonian
May 22nd, 2015


Early in his third term, Gov. John Kitzhaber created a powerful overarching education board that he pledged would forge dramatic improvements statewide. The panel would zero in on key strategies, break down the silos separating preschools, public schools and colleges and overhaul spending priorities to get the most vital results.
He put a host of influential Oregonians on the board, ranging from the teachers union president to a Nike executive. The governor himself was its chairman.
Four years later, the Oregon Legislature is days away from killing that board for good.
Gov. Kate Brown, Kitzhaber's successor, told The Oregonian/OregonLive she fully supports the move.
