Testimony before Montana’s Senate Education and Resources Committee on House Bill 203.
Chairman Salomon and members of the committee,
Thank you for allowing me to speak briefly about Montana House Bill 203. My name is Jude Schwalbach, and I’m an education policy analyst with Reason Foundation, a national non-profit think tank.
Montana House Bill 203 would make it easier for students to find a public school that best fits their needs. The legislation would let students attend public schools other than their residentially assigned schools. It would only let school districts reject transfer applicants for limited reasons, such as insufficient capacity. H.B.
