Bill to Provide State Funds for Private Education and Homeschooling Withdrawn
DES MOINES, Iowa — Iowa lawmakers have killed a bill that would have allocated state resources for private schooling and homeschooling.
Senate File 372 would have given grants of over $6,800. That equaled what districts receive from the state per student.
The bill was withdrawn on the Senate floor Monday.
Ninety-two percent of Iowa’s students attend a public school.
