U.S. Sen. Jon Tester rolled out a proposal to bolster higher education opportunities for veterans and plugged a pair of bills targeting rural teacher shortages at Montana State University Billings on Monday.
The Rural Educator Support and Training Act and the Native Educator Support and Training Act were first introduced by Tester in 2015. Both acts provide targeted scholarships and loan forgiveness for teachers.
