Senate Bill 182 seeks to deepen professional support for Oregon’s educators. This includes more coordination among K-12 schools and local preschools to ensure a high-quality and seamless education system in the state. Children's Institute President Swati Adarkar and Chalkboard Project President Sue Hildick discuss this and other opportunities Senate Bill 182 will offer our educators.
In a study published by the Institute of Labor Economics in March 2017, low-income Black students who have a Black teacher for at least one year in elementary school are less likely to drop out of high school later and more likely to consider college.
Oregon needs a new strategy on how we support educators. We need a new statewide infrastructure that empowers the teaching profession and lifts student outcomes. Senate Bill 182 will help build on the good work already done. GreatTeachersOR.org
