"Montana is just one of many states experimenting with school choice options that include private religious schools. In addition to tax credits, educational savings accounts and vouchers are popular among parents who want not just the ability to choose a school based on academic quality but to select a school that aligns with their values in terms of discipline and citizenship and moral formation. In addition to helping parents and students these programs help keep religious schools open and available as a choice in a time when there have been numerous closures of smaller faith based elementary schools."
