(Portland, OR)  --  Governor Kate Brown is opening the school year with a pep talk for students.  Brown welcomed freshman students at Portland's Madison High yesterday and got a shouted promise that all 342 of them would graduate.  The state's graduation rate has improved during Brown's term, but still lags behind most of the nation, with nearly 25-percent of Oregon students failing to get a diploma on time.  The Oregonian reports that the governor promised to inject 300-million dollars into the state's high schools for career-technical courses, double the present level.
