The Mission

The PDX Education Action Network is a site dedicated to the following:

  • œProviding up-to-date information on local and national education issues
  • Continuing discussions on educational equity, social justice, supporting young people in our communities, etc.
  • Providing resources for continued community-based learning and giving
  • œCreating a network of informed educators, community members, parents, family members
  • Sharing stories from the field,  voices from teachers, volunteers, students, and advocates

This site was inspired by the dedication and enthusiasm of my Portland State University students in the Educational Equity and Enhancing Youth Literacy Capstones and the idea that all of us would do more in our communities if we were more informed and more connected.  My sincere hope is that this information spreads to family and friends so that we all become more tuned in to the challenges and triumphs of organizations that education and support children in Portland and that we collectively act to support organizations doing good work for kids and families.

I invite those of you who volunteer, work with kids, parent, advocate, teach, mentor, counsel, and support young people in this community to participate and share.
