A growing number of Indiana students receiving school vouchers are already enrolled in private schools, a report released last week says.

State education department analysts found that roughly 40 percent of students—about 7,800 children—who received vouchers for the 2013-14 school year had never enrolled in Indiana's public schools.

The report shows growth of so-called "nonpublic" voucher recipients beginning to cost the state more money, although vouchers still ended up saving about $5 million last year.
