Schools Students Deserve

Student success is about their future. And ours.
Each and every Oregon student deserves a quality public education, and OEA is dedicated to ensuring students have access to neighborhood public schools that allow them to achieve their potential and follow their dreams.
Educators, leaders, parents, caregivers, neighbors, and concerned citizens–we all contribute to giving each and every student an equal opportunity to get a great public education. Here are some of the ways we're working to improve public education for our students.

Student Success Act

In 2019, OEA members across the state worked together to secure the Student Success Act (SSA) - a historic investment in Oregon's students and public schools.

Class Sizes & Caseloads

Growing class sizes and caseloads are making it harder than ever for educators to meet the individual needs of their students.
OEA Vice President Enrique Farrera
More members means a stronger union. And as a stronger OEA, we can more effectively bargain for good wages and benefits, so we can focus on our students. That's why I'm proud to be a member of OEA.
Quote by: Enrique Farrera, OEA Vice President
Members march down the street wearing red and carrying signs.

Together we're stronger. Together we're heard.

Keeping the Promise of Quality Public Education

The Oregon Education Association (OEA) is a union committed to the cause of providing the basic right of great public education to every student. OEA represents about 41,000 educators working in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 public schools and community colleges. OEA’s membership includes licensed teachers and specialists, classified/education support professionals (ESPs), community college faculty, retired educators, and student members. OEA members also belong to the 3.2 million members of the National Education Association (NEA).
