HELENA (Jan. 16, 2019) – Hundreds of Montana students, parents, and educators in showing support for school choice at the Montana Capitol building at noon on Thursday, Jan. 24.  

Students from a wide array of educational backgrounds will come together at the Capitol to rally for educational opportunity. This event is planned to coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2019, which will feature more than 40,000 school choice events across all 50 states. 

Speakers at the rally include elected officials such as Rep. Seth Berglee, Rep. Jonathan Windy Boy, Rep. Bill Mercer, and community leaders such as Jeff Laszloffy, President and CEO of the Montana Family Foundation and David Herbst, State Director for the Montana Chapter of Americans for Prosperity. 

“Why do we need school choice? The answer is easy,” said Jeff Laszloffy, president and CEO of the Montana Family Foundation. “Two thousand kids drop out of school every year in the Big Sky Country. One size fits all education simply doesn’t work for
every student. School choice reduces the drop-out rate by allowing every child to find their perfect educational fit.”  

This event is supported by the Montana School Choice Coalition, which focuses on empowering parents with the best education options for their children.
