Legislative Update

515 N. Sanders, Helena, Montana 59601

This paragraph appeared in an official memorandum "From the Executive Director's Desk," addressed to all school administrators of Montana (Volume VI, No. 4):

“The home schoolers beat us up during the hearings on SB287 and HB533. They put on a show about their successes and we had little or nothing in the way of statistics that demonstrated some of the problems nor did we have a host of administrators parading before the Education Committees. HB533—the testing of home schoolers—was quickly killed and SB 287—declaring the rights of home schoolers—passed out of the senate on a 44-5 vote on its way to the house. Too many legislators have a very dim view of public education.”
