For decades now, Oregon has been disinvesting in our schools and critical services. Our tax system is not fair, leaving working families to pick up the tab for Oregon’s schools and services while out-of-state corporations pay some of the lowest taxes in the nation. Without the resources that they need, Oregon students face some of the largest class sizes in the country and graduate at some of the lowest rates. This crisis in our classrooms has disproportionately hurt students of color and and students from low-income families. It’s time to fix this. At Invest in Oregon, we are advocating to make our tax system more fair and to finally invest in Oregon students and families.
What can we do to make Oregon’s economy fairer?
