Greg Gianforte Wants to Privatize Montana’s Public Schools

Helena, MT – Greg Gianforte wants to privatize Montana’s public schools, which he has called “monopoly.” 

Gianforte has donated more than $12 million to Petra Academy, a private school in Bozeman that discriminates against students with disabilities, and he’s praised and filed a brief in support of the Espinoza v. Montana decision, widely considered to be a victory for school privatization advocates (bankrolled by Gianforte).

Despite Gianforte’s attempts to erase his atrocious record on public education, Montana’s largest teacher’s union – which took the unprecedented step of unanimously condemning Gianforte’s candidacy – is calling “bull” on Gianforte’s attempts to “hide from his shameful record.”

Gianforte can’t be trusted to stand up for Montana’s public school students or teachers.
