Oregon’s $3.5 billion dollar shortfall has hit classrooms as hard as anywhere else in the state. Last Saturday, teachers, administrators and PTA leaders from all over the state got together for a symposium to discuss how they can better work together to compensate for fewer education dollars. Governor Kitzhaber spoke to the gathering as well as his new Chief Education Advisor, Nancy Golden. She says there are many groups around the state doing good work and it's time to coordinate efforts. "That's why collaboration's so key. It's looking at what all these separate groups do and saying 'let's make a smooth pathway from cradle to career.' And I think using collaboration, there's a lot more we can do." The Governor gave some hints about his upcoming budget and told educators to expect cuts.  The Oregon Education Association sponsored the symposium as part of an ongoing series of event for improving student success.
