Oregon's education community may be all abuzz with talk of CTE, career and technical education, but that's not the biggest concern of students. 

A report by Oregon Student Voice found the greatest concern among students is mental health resources, nearly double the number who identified CTE as the top issue. 

OSV does what its name implies: works to get the voices of students heard in the formation of educational policy.  Students Maisie Roberson from Ashland High School and Grace Didway, from Oregon City High School, talk about OSV and the concerns of students.
