PIPS Program Hosts Ballot Measures Forum September 26

Oregon Law’s Public Interest Public Service (“PIPS”) program, with the support of a grant from the Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics, will host a forum on ballot measures Friday, September 26, in Room 175 of the Knight Law Center.

A public discussion from 1:00 to 2:15 p.m. will focus on Measure 58, which would restrict bilingual education in public schools. The discussion will include five panelists: Bill Sizemore, the sponsor of Measure 58; Alejandra Favela, coordinator of the Bilingual Endorsement Program at Lewis and Clark College; Steven Bender, an Oregon Law professor who recently authored a book on the English-only movement; Paco Furlan, principal of Eugene’s River Road/El Camino del Rio Elementary School, which is trying to implement a dual immersion program; and Marcia Koenig, lead recruiter for the Lane E.S.D. Migrant Education Program.

Earlier in the day, a discussion for the University of Oregon community titled “Is Direct Democracy Dangerous?” will take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. The discussion features Sizemore, Oregon Law Professor Tom Lininger, and Ethnic Studies and Political Science Professor Daniel HoSang.
