Governor Kitzhaber has said he will sign the $5.7 billion dollar education budget approved by lawmakers, but he hasn't yet. Bend La Pine School Board Member Nori Juba is on the Governor's Investment Team. The group is charged with trying to come up with a more efficient way to fund education Pre-K through college.

Juba says the group has met once. “We do have education that is underfunded.  We need some drastic change. We need to fund education at a higher level. We need to make structural changes.   Class schedules and class sizes are not the ultimate end, the ultimate end is to make sure our kids have skills to function in the real world.” The investment team will meet again at the end of the month. They are looking at funding models that aren't based on population, but on outcome.
