Welcome!

I’m Alan Bates, and I’m running for State Senate to bring people together to find common sense solutions for Southern Oregon.

As your State Senator, I’ll help small businesses grow and get people back to work, increase school funding so we can reduce class sizes and restore lost school days, and make government work better for everyone. As a family physician, a former school board member and a state senator, I care deeply about Southern Oregon and I’ll work tirelessly to represent our priorities in the State Senate.

Thank you for your continued support,

Senator Alan Bates Education Forum in Medford
I recently asked teachers and community leaders to come together and discuss education in Southern Oregon. I was inspired by Tom Cole from Kids Unlimited who said that successful education happens when children are loved, respected, and supported.

Vicci EwenIf Chris Gaub and Chrissy Cox thinks love, respect and support are rainbows and pixie dust then I'm sorry for their children. It ALL starts there so the teachers can follow thru. I commend Dr Bates for recognizing Tom Cole's very important observations. Conservatives, calm down! Instead of fighting with everything WE are trying to do why don't you go help YOUR GUY. SHEEZ! So Hostile!!2 weeks ago   ·  12
Karen AltmanSo when did that change??? Why would they need to be reminded of something as important as that...I thought this was common knowledge...2 weeks ago   ·  15
Shelly ColclasureAnyone with an education should remember Maslow's Hierarchy of needs. Just apply that simple formula and you'll see that learning can't happen until these more basic needs are met.2 weeks ago   ·  11
Betsy Tam SalterGlad to hear a couple of the panel members point out that the standardized test scores aren't a useful indicator for whether students are learning. We really need to get rid of high stakes testing - the test scores are being misused to label students, teachers, schools, administrators, school districts and neighborhoods as failures. The Oregonian takes great joy in humiliating school communities based on these test scores. Principals are pressured to take away recess, arts programming, and other educational opportunities in order to make more time for reading and math because they need to raise test scores. I am a parent in PPS and I am hearing crazy stories from other parents and from teachers about lost programs: Friday school wide assemblies, Grandparents and Special Friends Day. These traditional events build school community and help teachers get to know students families. One of our principals even told parents that they raised more money from Run for the Arts than he wanted to spend on arts. He suggested they alternate between Run for the Arts and Run for Technology so that he could buy new computers for TESTING! Plus, our kids are going to be losing all kinds of instructional time because they need to learn keyboarding, mouse manipulation and drag and drop skills, starting in KINDERGARTEN, in order to take the new common core computer tests next spring. Our children are going to school to get a well rounded education and to be respected and appreciated as unique individuals, NOT test scores/outcomes.2 weeks ago   ·  7
Michael ShawHow about actually teaching subjects? Reading, writing, arithmetic, history. If our schools actually taught these subjects instead of the social engineering they are doing then our students wouldn't be so behind a great majority of the rest of the world.2 weeks ago   ·  10

Brian VincentReally our entire approach to education needs to change, both in the actual teaching of our children and in the funding of our schools. Not only do teachers need to be paid more, they need to be more in touch with their students, this means smaller classrooms, and I think we should get rid of the K-12 system as well and rather have teachers become mentors that spend every day with their class from the beginning of their education to the beginning of their higher education. This would hopefully build a bond between student and teacher that would be similar to family. If you care about someone, you will guide them to the best they can be. Right now school is an assembly line babysitters club where hopefully the occasional student will become inspired. I think a group of 3 teachers of various skills (math/science, english/literature, arts/music) assigned a class of 18 - 21 students for 10 years would produce phenomenal results. Unemployment is a concern, well then this would create jobs as well. Funding is a problem? Stop supporting federal war efforts and focus that money to education. Make it easier for future teachers to go to school, and make it pay enough that someone would be willing and able to take on the commitment. It's only our future that is at stake.2 weeks ago   ·  2
John Paul VineyardTrue!2 weeks ago
Kristina MarliaAmen to that! And it's easier for teachers to provide that when they themselves are treated the same way by administration and parents.2 weeks ago   ·  2

Fawn RhyneDr Bates does care. He has always cared. What he speaks is not hype... only here for time in need. I love this MAN! because he stands so strong in what he believes. He has always been the man you see today. He was my Dr from 1980 until moving to the Umpqua Valley in 1990. He is compassionate, a leader, and a dignified man. Simply said, A caring strong honest person. I support a straight shooter. Thanks Dr Bates for all you have given to so many. You are irreplaceable.2 weeks ago   ·  1

Samuel YounghansSenator Bates: I tried to find your post about protecting the elderly, no luck. As there are prejudiced minded predators for race, color etc.; there are predators for the elderly. I am an elder - 84, and I was backed into by a woman in a large truck, who after coming back to my car, and seeing I was an old man, told me my headlight was smashed, then drove away. Because I memorized her license number, the police found her. She said she tried to find me, and that I rear-ended her. Fortunately, I found a surveillance camera that shows the whole episode, but I have a ninety-two year old friend. who didn't fair so well when she was victimized. She lost her drivers license, and she is an excellent driver. We old folks need some protection from those types of people.2 weeks ago
