Schools are on the Oregon ballot in a big way this year.
The corporate tax initiative, Measure 97, would raise billions — much of it for schools. Scan down a little further and Measure 98 would direct state funding to high school programs for dropout prevention, college readiness and career training. It would not raise taxes, but it is raising concerns among some educators.
Gov. Kate Brown recently visited Portland’s Madison High School to see how career education helps students graduate.
