Newspaper: Iowa used public funds for private schools


DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa has spent nearly $500 million in public money in the past decade to support private schools and home school programs, according to a newspaper's analysis.

The Des Moines Register found that state money goes toward supporting private-school operations through busing assistance, textbook purchases, special education funding and scholarship support. The state also offers a tax credit for those who pay private-school tuition.
