MONTANA GRADES ITS SCHOOLS ON BULLYING AND ATTENDANCE. IDAHO DOES NOT.

THE DIFFERENCE

One thing Montana does differently:

Each school is graded on its positive school climate to reduce student bullying and its overall attendance to increase the likelihood that students actually go to school each day. Idaho doesn’t grade its schools for reducing bullying or encouraging attendance.

Without the same level of accountability, Idaho kids are at a disadvantage.*
