My wife retires from the Beaverton School District on Monday after 30 years. We have known this was coming.

This District like Portland is extremely mismanaged. We have seen BSD go from one of the best districts in Oregon going in the toilet. They still have some great dedicated teachers but most are leaving.

$12 million accounting error, soaring pension costs put Beaverton schools in dire straits

An increase in K-12 spending from the state hardly made a dent in the shortfall facing Oregon's third largest school district

PS: BSD Just asked for the families to vote to raise their taxes. They said yes. This was only a couple of yrs ago.

Statewide issue. More families will be seeking private education if they can. I'll stick to the facts here and not try to politicize these comments:

Gov Brown signed the Student Success Act that will be funded by a gross receipts tax. Currently, there are efforts to refer this tax to voters. If 75,000 signatures are gathered within 90 days this will go to the ballot. This will be a highly contested issue. Ultimately, I believe most will agree the financials resources need to assist the students. There are some legitimate questions as to how or if this will be achieved.
