“Educational freedom allows students to get an education that best meets their unique needs. Options in our education create a system where educators are empowered to innovate and help students succeed,” said AFP-MT State Director David Herbst. “During the next legislative session, Montana lawmakers must continue to explore educational options that ensure students, regardless of income or zip code, have access to educational options that will enable them to learn and thrive.”
