Nickerson-Kveim test xanax for sale in mexico nitrogenous Celebrating Powerful Endorsements for Measure #26-146 from North and Northeast Portland
State Senator Chip Shields and State Representative Lew Frederick of North and Northeast Portland are joined by the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN) in their endorsement of City of Portland Measure 26-146.
“When budget cuts force schools to focus on ‘the basics,’ the arts are, unfortunately, among the first programs to go,” explained Senator Shields and Representative Frederick in a recent message to constituents. “Elementary school kids in North and Northeast Portland, whose families are often unable to provide additional opportunities outside of school, are particularly vulnerable to growing up with gaps in their education brought about by lack of arts education.”
Senator Shields and Representative Frederick go on to say, “Research shows that students who receive an arts education have higher grade point averages, higher standardized test scores, higher graduation rates and better chances of attending college. And for low-income students at schools like Woodlawn, King, Boise-Elliott, Irvington, Sabin, Faubion, Sitton, Peninsula, Beach, Chief Joe and Ockley Green the benefits are even more striking.”

Yet students in our elementary schools that have the highest rates of poverty are 50% less likely to have art or music classes.”
Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods (NECN) shares this concern and joins their State Representatives in support of Measure 26-146 as the solution.
NECN is a 501c3 nonprofit organization representing 12 neighborhoods in North/Northeast Portland and works to advance neighborhood livability through highly inclusive civic engagement. Recently the group established a Schools Committee to focus on improvements in education in North & Northeast Portland neighborhoods.
“The arts are part of our cultural legacy and the development of young minds. Every Portland resident deserves equitable access to Portland’s wealth of arts, culture and creativity. We need to win this. For our children and for our City.”
