Nearly 1 in 3 Oregon students learning in-person attend private schools, election 2020 preview: The week in education

An Oregonian/OregonLive analysis of state education data found that 30% of students who attended in-person classes the week of Sept. 28-Oct. 2 are enrolled in private schools.

All told, 550 Oregon schools offered some form of in-person instruction that week, teaching some 46,000 students. One hundred and seventy of those schools are private and taught 13,000 students in-person, state Department of Education figures show.

That means 6% of the state’s 560,000 K-12 students visited a classroom last week. The share of private students in the overall population is about 2%.

In order for school districts to allow in-person instruction, the county they’re in must meet specific coronavirus set by the state. If a district or school draws 10% or more of its workforce or enrollment from more than one county, both must meet the metrics in order for the district to open its classrooms.

That’s the case in Portland Public Schools, where district officials this week say their reopening fortunes are tied to coronavirus metrics in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties. Officials there don’t expect students to see the inside of a classroom until late January at the earliest.

Here are some of the other major education stories from this week:

Education stories from the Portland area:

Most Portland voters will see a pair of education-related tax measures on the ballot next month, one of them a $1.2 billion campaign from the state’s largest district to update a high school in a historically black neighborhood and another to fund free preschool for all Multnomah County children ages 3 and 4.

The Portland Public Schools measure would pay for extensive renovations to Jefferson High School, as well as accessibility throughout the district and investments in curriculum and technology. You can read the full details of the measure here.

The preschool measure, an effort backed by Multnomah County Commissioner Jessicca Vega Pederson, would tax the county’s highest earners to fund a universal system that would prioritize the region’s most economically disadvantaged families of color in its first year. It would impose a tax of 1.5% on personal incomes of $125,000 and joint incomes of $250,000 in 2021 and scale up to a 2.3% rate in 2022. You can read the full details of the measure here.

And across the state:

Classes are back in session for Oregon’s universities. And in Eugene, the start of the term is ushering in a wave of coronavirus infections. But classes aren’t where students in Lane County are contracting COVID-19. It’s the parties.

The Oregonian/OregonLive’s Aimee Green has the story.

College football Week 6 preview

This weekend’s college football slate appeared to have a pretty strong tag: Red River Week. No matter what else was going on, you knew there would be at least one season-defining game on the docket.

So much for that. Texas and Oklahoma are a combined 3-3, and neither is in the AP top 20.

Big games remain, however. We have four matchups of ranked teams — two in Saturday’s early slot, one in the afternoon and a top-10 banger (OK, possible banger) in the evening. This is the biggest weekend of this strange season thus far. So let’s swim around in these matchups and figure out how things are going to go.

Bill Connelly breaks down Miami’s roster and whether the Hurricanes have the players needed to beat Clemson on Saturday.

If you don’t trust Miami yet, it’s understandable. The Hurricanes have lost their past three games as top-10 teams, and they haven’t finished a season in the AP top 10 since 2003. They have beaten three decent but unspectacular teams — Louisville, Florida State and UAB each ranked between 35th and 52nd in SP+ — by an average score of 43-19. They have risen to ninth themselves in SP+, but now comes the ultimate progress check: a trip to Clemson. Combined score of their past two meetings: Clemson 96, Miami 3.

What does a Clemson loss look like?

We see Dabo Swinney’s Tigers fall so infrequently that after a while it becomes pretty difficult to even envision it. They are 72-5 since the start of 2015. But in those five losses you do find a few trends:

Every team generates better stats in wins than losses, obviously, but it’s sometimes instructive to look into what specifically changes for certain teams when they do well or poorly.

For Clemson, it appears you have to be able to keep up on the scoreboard; you aren’t going to shut down the Tigers. They have scored at least 24 points in four of these five losses.

Success usually comes through the air. Taking out the outlier of the losses, a 24-6 slog against Miami in 2017, opponents have completed an average of 22 of 36 passes for 346 yards and 3.8 touchdowns in the Tigers’ other four losses. You cannot turn the ball over — opponents suffered only three turnovers in these five losses — and you have to generate some explosiveness.

Miami has had plenty of the latter. The Canes are seventh in marginal explosiveness, and while a lot of those big gains have come from the run game, quarterback D’Eriq King has still completed passes of 75, 47, 40, and 31 in his first three games as a Hurricane. He also has yet to throw a pick.

Despite losing some stars from last season’s secondary and getting only 21 snaps from standout cornerback Derion Kendrick thus far, Clemson’s pass defense numbers have been fine: 17th in passing success rate allowed, 28th in ANY/A (a yards-per-attempt measure that
