The School Funding Pledge is a program that works to raise the awareness of Oregon's school funding crisis and to work to push Legislators to come up with a solution that provides long-term, stable and adequate funding to Oregon's K-12 system.

Legislative Pledge

I hereby recognize that Oregon's current system of funding public education is inadequate, unsustainable and threatens to undermine Oregon's future and our economy. Nothing shall deter me from achieving long-term stable and adequate funding for public education in the next regular legislative session -- not even the projected budget shortfall of nearly $1.4 billion.

I hereby commit to solving the lack of long-term, sustainable funding for public schools in an open and inclusive manner that solicits participation from all sides in the 2003 Regular Legislative Session. I will steadfastly vote in opposition to adjournment (sine die) until we have solved this crucial issue.

I hereby pledge to solve the lack of long-term, sustainable funding for Oregon's public schools in the 2003 Regular Legislative Session.

"I wish we had the courage to talk about long-term funding for schools...the silence is deafening."
-Senator Lenn Hannon (R-Ashland);
3rd Special Session, June 2002

"Right now, school boards in Oregon need a Ouiji Board and some tea leaves to predict the level of state funding for next year. The Uncertainty of our budgets will create staffing and scheduling nightmares for many schools."
-Beth Gerot, Eugene School Board Member; From news sources, June 27, 2002

"Oregonians have heard nothing but empty promises for years about finding a workable, permanent solution to the lack of adequate and sustainable funding for education. The Pledge represents an opportunity for Oregonians to say 'enough is enough' and hold Legislators accountable. The Pledge offers Legislators and legislative candidates an opportunity to show voters just how serious they are about solving Oregon's long-term school funding crisis. OSEA is proud to lead the effort to finally do something about it."
-Steven Araujo, Executive Director; Oregon School Employees Association
