Here are the bills that could make an impact on education in Oregon

Some lawmakers say it's the most important topic in the legislature.
And with the amount of funds, the policies and the legislation devoted to education, it's also among the most highly-debated issues at the Oregon State Capitol during the 2015 session.
Few people argue that schools need less money and less attention. But many bills focused on giving Oregon's education system, the students and their educators the support and resources they need were at the heart of much of the 2015 session's discourse.
Few would know better than the chairs of the Senate and House committees on education, Rep. Margaret Doherty, D-Tigard, and Sen. Arnie Roblan, D-Coos Bay.
"Overall I think education got a highlight in this session," said Sen. Arnie Roblan, D-Coos Bay, who chaired the Senate committee on education. "It was a pretty productive year on both the House and Senate side."
