Getting Schooled:

Perspectives on Public Education in Montana

Much like in other states, high-level discussions in Helena on the nature of K-12 public education could have important implications for school districts throughout Montana. Join City Club Missoula on September 19 for a forum that will feature public education policy perspectives from a few distinct points of view.

The panel, featuring State Representative David Bedey, McCall Flynn, the Executive Director of the Montana Board of Public Education, and Lance Melton, Executive Director of the Montana School Board Association, will cover such topics as the roles of school boards, parental involvement, curriculum development and content, as well as teacher accreditation and licensure requirements.

Jill Valley, news anchor at KPAX, in Missoula, will moderate this timely panel.

 

The live stream for next Monday’s forum will be available on MCAT: https://mcat.org/watch/local-live/

21 Charts That Explain How America Is Failing Schools

As conceived by America’s founding fathers, public education was supposed to bind together a nation of immigrants from disparate classes. But public schools today are at the center of controversy, over curricula, security protocols, mask mandates, and more. As of June, only 29% of Americans—and just 14% of Republicans—put their trust in them, the lowest level since Gallup began asking the question in 1973.
