Episode Description:

Guest Greg Burrill, peace activist, entrepreneur and educator, talks about the Portland Public Schools and the financing of K-12 education in general in Oregon. Oregon is experiencing a funding crisis due to passage of Measures 5 and 50. Greg talks about what those measures did and continue to do, and how they took us from having a school system which was a national model to one characterized by underfunding and under-achievement. And we discuss Oregon's Quality Education Model, which sets standards for school districts, individual schools and students statewide and set out funding requirements, which, Greg points out, are not being met Finally we talk about the school systems in Finland and So. Korea, both of which rank much higher than American school, even as they are quite different from each other.
