MEDFORD, Ore. — Rep. Knute Buehler says he wants to focus on school funding, and says this is one of Governor Kate Brown's biggest failings.

He outlined several goals, including education, health care, homelessness, and bridging Oregon's rural/urban divide.

According to his office, the education plan includes:

 - Classroom funding: increasing K-12 General Fund budget by about 15 percent over four years, and pension and health insurance reforms taht could re-direct an additional $1.2 billion in performance-based classroom spending each year.

 - Improve Oregon's graduation rate to one of the top five in the nation within five years, through a combination of academic and funding reforms, teacher support initiatives, and a commitment to career and technical education.

 - Return Oregon to the 180-day school year, up from the current 165-day average for schools in Oregon.

 - Fully fund Oregon's career and technical education initiative.
