Have you ever gotten a product home from the store and discovered it doesn’t do what you expected it to do? Anytime there’s a gap between what’s sold and what’s reality…you know there’s been some marketing afoot.
I can think of no other place that illustrates this more than our school system. We are promised that school will be all things to all kids. We are told kids will be prepared for the future. Learning differences will be accommodated and bad teachers will be sent on their way.
One need not look very hard to see that these promises fall short on delivery. Our present educational models are failing our kids!
We need change and we need it now. Charter schools offer a great opportunity to do just that. Montana is one of ten states that do not allow charter schools and it’s high time to get with the program.
We need your help.
This Wednesday, the hearing on HB603 Public Charter will be heard at 3:00 p.m. in Room 303, at the Capitol.
Rest assured the the unions and higher ups in education will be there in full force. We need to let the senate hear our voices. I mean, really, this comes down to….who’s going to make the decisions when it comes to school choice (or lack there of) for our kids?
Come, be heard.
