Letter to Kate Brown

Any assessment system we design must align with these new standards and must include the use of annual summative assessments for all students in grades 3-8 and once in high school. We are concerned, however, with the recent movement of downplaying the importance of statewide annual assessments for measuring overall student achievement, closing achievement gaps, and holding our public education system accountable for the significant state investment in it.

See the Future of Oregon

You can read these words because someone taught you how to read.

You can do your job because over the years, everyone from your kindergarten teacher to your college professor to your mentor taught you how.

We become the people we are, as Mr. Rogers said, because of the people who loved us into being. In schools—big and small, city and rural—across Oregon, the love and dedication of thousands of teachers help millions of students become the people they will be. Scientists. Mechanics. Engineers. Doctors. Farmers. Inventors. And yes, teachers.
