“Stand for Children Oregon supports the Portland Public School Bond and encourages a Yes vote. Portland students need healthy classrooms in order to receive a modern education. The PPS Bond will remove lead from the water of every PPS building, making our students' water safe to drink again. The PPS bond will increase the number of schools that can withstand an earthquake and keep our kids safe. The bond will also help give more high school students access to updated career technical education spaces, helping to boost graduation rates and better preparing students for good paying jobs when they graduate."
