"Oregon Rising" Seeks To Elevate Education

Wikipedia Commons

The concern over the quality of education in Oregon has been rising in recent years, especially with measurements like the state's low high school graduation rate. 

What will it take to make Oregon schools better? 

That's the general thrust of the questions asked of people in the Oregon Rising education project. 

More than ten-thousand people took part in the project, giving a clear picture of desires and expectations for Oregon schools.  COSA, the Confederation of School Administrators, took part in Oregon Rising. Adam Davis of DHM Research explains the work; Craig Hawkins of COSA talks about what will be done with the findings.
