Task Force Continues Long OBC History of Support for Education Improvement
The Education Task Force is OBC’s longest standing committee of directors and deputies, with a focus on overhauling Oregon education for better outcomes. See this page for a summary of OBC’s work in education reform.
Besides working on education transformation at the policy level, the Task Force represents OBC member organizations that have a vital interest in an educated work force and that directly partner with local schools, early learning programs, and colleges and universities throughout the state in a variety of ways to support student success. These include volunteering, grants, scholarships, internships, apprenticeships, job shadows, and science and robotics fairs.
