As a parent whose children have attended public, private, and home schools, Jeff makes a convincing case for why Montana should catch up to other states by providing parents with the ability to choose the best education for their child. Jeff Laszloffy discusses options including charter schools, the voucher system, the virtual schooling option, scholarship tax write offs, and scholarships for children with disabilities.

Schools are not underfunded, they are under accountable. Listen to the interview to arm yourself with the facts!
