The article focuses on the K-12 school funding in Oregon. Though Oregon's economy is looking up, a recent boycott of education budget sessions by Republican lawmakers signals that this year could provide another bare-knuckled debate over K-12 funding. Two years ago, Oregon drew unwanted national attention when, after several rounds of acrimonious debate over school aid, many school districts cut school days, reduced academic programs, and laid off employees because of deep state aid cuts. Senate Democrats came up with a figure K-12 school spending at heart of proposals for short, long terms of $5.3 billion.
