What do DeVos, Arntzen, and Gianforte all have in common?
Spoiler: they all want to privatize public education in Montana.
What is "school choice"? Don't be fooled. “School choice” is a catch-all phrase that covers a variety of efforts to privatize public education. The "school choice" movement has been around for decades, trying to expand its reach school district state by state.
School Choice = School Privatization
Using public funds to support for-profit private schools undermines the public school system, which educates the majority of Montana's children, and that it's ultimately aimed at privatizing the most important civic institution in the country.
Betsy DeVos is a huge advocate of school privatization. But did you know Superintendent of Public Education Elsie Arntzen also supports school privatization? So does U.S. Representative Greg Gianforte.
So, what can we do to support and protect Montana's public schools?
