A panel of education policy leaders will look at ways to address more than a decade of state education budget shortfalls in an upcoming Wayne Morse Center panel discussion, “Solving Oregon’s K-12 Funding Crisis: Where We’ve Been and Solutions for the Future.”

“Providing a stable source of funding for public schools is fundamental to our democracy," said Ellen Herman, Wayne Morse Center faculty codirector. "Paying for education has been challenging for a long time in Oregon, and we face a critical turning point in that challenge this year. At the Wayne Morse Center, we believe that every resident of our state has an important stake in the education of the next generation."

The event will take place Tuesday, March 29, at 7 p.m. in Room 175 Knight Law Center. It features Adam Davis, founder of DHM Research; state Sen. Sara Gelser; Colt Gill, Bethel School District superintendent; and John Tapogna, president of ECONorthwest.
