Trump rhetoric leads Oregon's largest universities to double down on welcoming immigrants, Dreamers
By Andrew Theen. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and controversial travel bans have sent a chill through Oregon’s cash-strapped public universities, which rely more than ever on lucrative tuition from international students. Since Trump took office, applications from international students have dropped by double-digit percentages at Portland State University alone. The stakes are high. If the collective international undergraduate population at Oregon’s Big Three were pooled into a separate school, it would be the fourth largest university in the state, at more than 6,200 students   Read More ...

Friday Forum: Back to School
Back to School: An Update on Statewide Education Initiatives In May 2017, Oregon voters overwhelmingly approved two statewide education initiatives designed, in part, to provide students with meaningful hands-on, experiential learning opportunities. Measure 98, the High School College and Career initiative, provides high school students across Oregon with access to vocational/career technical education (CTE) opportunities, college-level classes while in high school, and drop-out prevention strategies and support. Measure 98, Outdoor School for All, provides every Oregon sixth grader with access to a full week of science-infused outdoor learning. Both citizen initiatives garnered huge support with more than 65% voter approval. Once passed, the Oregon Legislature drastically cut voter-approved funding, but the programs are intact enough to make a significant impact as this school year starts   Read More ...
