    532 is good.
    621 is bad.
    43 is very bad.
    all bills attempting to get rid of the double majority are VERY, VERY BAD
    2263 is stupid – they will need to be replaced with something very similar, so why bother? Accountability is 0 in Oregon schools.
    448 is stupid – we don’t need multicultural anything – just good teachers who are not union thugs.

    532 is GREAT not just good it is exactly what we need

    621 defeats the use of charter schools therefore is bad

    43 is a bad bill but it wont pass so I am not worried about it

    448 a dumb waste of money but not the biggest threat in the world

    As far as CIM and CAM go they never worked, as a student of the “CIM” generation I can tell you it did little if anything for anybody. I am fine with standardized tests but thats not all CIM is it needs to be massivly reworked.
