This imposes an additional $62 million expense on the state’s General Fund. On average, taxpayer-funded private school subsidies cost an additional $4,700 or 75 percent more per student than the $6,000 the state pays to educate a regular education public school student when paid entirely from state funds -- Arizona’s private school subsidies cost $140,874,776 for regular education students who would not have otherwise attended a private school."  Yay!
