Abe and Joe examine the two educational bond measures on the May 2011 ballot.
Portland Public Schools has two bond measures on the May ballot. One would provide funds to update and renovate Portland's aging public school facilities, while the other would provide funds to prevent teacher layoffs and preserve vulnerable programs.

Chuck and Bill talk about what the problems with the Oregon budget are - revenue short-falls, tax-cuts and the recession rather than social spending and taxes - and the problems with the Governer and legislature's solutions.
