Title:State aid to nonpublic schools
Organization:Education Commission of the States

Annotation:The purpose of this document is to identify state aid to nonpublic schools. Not included, however, are tax benefits, vouchers and other tuition programs. Also excluded is aid provided pursuant to federal programs, such as the National School Lunch Program and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Where state transportation is provided to private school students, there are often times geographic and distance-based requirements that must be satisfied. The provision of textbooks is universally limited to the same texts used by the state schools. Also, funding constraints may render moot some of the state statutes authorizing the provision of textbooks to private schools. Finally, the “Constitutional Provisions” column in the table identifies what, if any, constitutional restrictions each state has on nonpublic school funding.
