Willamette Week: Murmers

WW Article Clip

“Last week, Gov. John Kitzhaber’s Oregon Education Investment Board met to take testimony on education spending and Kitzhaber’s school reform efforts. But only one person on the 12-member board, Hanna Vaandering of the Oregon Education Association, showed up. The board’s chief of staff, Cathleen Healy, says all board members will eventually see or hear all the testimony. Save Our Schools, a watchdog group, called the poor attendance “disrespectful.” The board plans eight hearings across the state to shape next year’s K-20 budget. The Portland hearing was held—without irony—at Marshall High School, shuttered in 2010 for financial reasons.”
