Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Pubic Schools in Montana are overfunded: S
2. Pubic Schools in Montana are underfunded: O
3. Pubic Schools in Montana are adequately funded: S
4. Parental choice in education should be expanded through tax credits, education savings accounts, vouchers, and other means to allow children to attend any school of their or their parents choice: SS
5. Montana should allow public charter schools: SS
6. Parents should be allowed to home school their children without additional state regulation: SS
7. The teaching of "Critical Race Theory" (CRT) should be banned in Montana public schools: SS
8. Comprehensive sex education, beginning as early as kindergarten, should be allowed in public elementary schools: SO* I believe a decentralized free-market school system would provide the highest quality education system while creating natural efficiencies, as free markets do. Good teachers would make more money, and bad teachers, like teachers that want to force little kids to wear masks outside, would likely be fired. Funding should follow the student instead of trickling down to the student through an ever growing bureaucracy. Recent forced masking policy makes it evident that the State Monopoly on publicly funded education services has to end. There has been, in my view, a major abuse of parental rights by School Boards over the last two years with forced masking. In Missoula, at many Elementary Schools, I saw very young kids being forced to wear masks outside in the sun while exercising. There is no scientific reason for this and the undesirable ramifications of this policy are still being revealed. Therefore I think some teachers and administrators need to be washed out of our school system. I think we need to allow new private schools to compete for the public education funds, giving parents and student more choices.
9. Income taxes in Montana are too high: SS
10. Property taxes in Montana are too high: SS
11. Corporate taxes in Montana are too high: SS
12. The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution allows all citizens to own firearms for self-protection: SS
13. Global warming is a problem requiring increased regulation: SO
14. Environmental regulations in Montana are too stringent: S
15. Environmental regulations in Montana are NOT stringent enough: O* I think taxation is theft. I believe in very small government. Let's keep the environment clean, lets keep our fishing and hunting resources healthy, and let's also use some of the available resources we have to feed our families. Let's streamline the environmental permitting process so new efficient infrastructure and housing can be built at a quicker pace.
