City Club of Portland members approved, with a 95% majority, A Second Chance for Oregon, High School Dropouts, and the GED. The study committee finds that, despite the shortcomings of previous versions, the new 2014 GED represents an opportunity to give high school dropouts a second chance for success.  City Club will work with statewide partners to take full advantage of this opportunity.
