Oregon may be on the verge of major education reform. State Representative Jason Conger of Bend spent much of his time in Salem on several bills that he says if they pass would have a huge impact to the education system. “If we're successful in passing all of these bills, it will likely represent the most fundamental education reform in Oregon’s history; the combination of all of the bills.” Here are some of the highlights from those six bills: all day kindergarten in Oregon, more options and financial accountability for charter schools, more flexibility for parents who need to transfer to different school districts, and one bill gives teachers the ability to use online classes for students. One bill would also make the Governor the State Superintendent of Schools.
