Brian Schweitzer on Education

Democratic MT Governor

 


Fund education adequately without new taxes

From the beginning, Schweitzer said education could be adequately funded without raising taxes. The question wasn't whether or not money should be pumped into education, the question was how much money and where it was to be spent.

Invest in K-12 by creating public-private partnerships

Education is the key to economic development, and I support investing in K-12 and higher education. We need to offer a competitive wage to attract and retain good teachers, and we need to hold schools and students accountable. Iíve proposed creating public-private partnerships with our 2 and 4-year institutions to lower the cost of college tuition.

Opposes parents choosing schools via vouchers

Brian does not support school vouchers. Brian wants Montanaís schools to be more than best in the country, we need to be best in the world. We need to create a logical, sequential system to evaluate new educational systems, not just throw more money at a problem.
