URGENT: Tell the Montana Legislature to Protect Public Education, Oppose Privatization
Montana's 67th Legislative Assembly is well underway, and the House and Senate are full of elected officials who wish to privatize our public school system, publicly fund private charter schools, provide vouchers, scale back public services that assist our most vulnerable students, and decrease support for our public school educators.
Public education is the cornerstone of every Montana community and every child is entitled to a thriving public school. Diverting public money to private for-profit institutions starves public schools of vital resources.
We, like most Montanans, firmly believe public funds belong in public schools, which are open to all children, governed by a locally elected school board, and accountable to the Board of Public Education.
