This bill would allow the creation of public charter schools here in Montana. Charter schools are public schools that are organized differently from normal public schools. They have a special community board overseeing them, and they usually have a special focus like the arts or science.
Montana Family Foundation Comments
Charter schools change how a small part of public education works. They’re not private schools, and they’re not allowed to have any religious affiliation. The Montana Family Foundation supports anything that allows more choice in education. We consider this bill a step on the road to full school choice.
