EUGENE, Ore. — Just months after she stepped down as the superintendent of the Springfield School District, Nancy Golden was back in front of parents and teachers. She’s now the Chief Education Officer for the state of Oregon.
Golden spoke Wednesday night at North Eugene High School about her vision for education in Oregon. She says she’d like to see open communication between parents, teachers, the district and the state.
“What is really next is just looking at what are those core outcomes that we really need to meet like being ready for kindergarten, reading at a 3rd grade level, and really staying focused on how we’re going to make that happen,” says Golden.
After her presentation, people broke up into groups to discuss what they think would be best for students and education.
