MISSOULA, Mont. -

Gov. Steve Bullock is looking for ways to make learning more relevant to Montana's young people.

Thursday, students and teachers at Willard Alternative High School in Missoula showed him innovative approaches they use everyday.

The governor saw how Willard and other Missoula schools employ hands-on, alternative education methods including working in small groups with fewer lectures. Students got to showcase a program that identifies a problem in the community and finds a solution.  

This was an impromptu visit to kick off the Governor's 2014 Back To School Tour.
