Iowa City Press Citizen, Iowa City, Iowa, 9 December 2006, Schools’ test scores improve
The board also will vote to begin a new program to help home-schooled students. The Home School Assistance Program will provide a teacher and support services that will help students who are home schooled. Currently, 64 students in the district open-enroll in similar programs in Cedar Rapids, Marion, Mid-Prairie and Muscatine.
This close association in Iowa between homeschooling families and the schools can be thought of as an “Iowa thing.”
