Description

An investigation by the Quad-City Times "revealed how 19 people with criminal conviction slipped undeteched onto a list of state-sanctioned home child-care providers in Iowa's Scott County. It uncovered holes in the system used by the Iowa Department of Human Services to screen such providers for criminal backgrounds. It also revealed that the state collectively paid those convicted providers $91,323 in public money last year to watch children of low-income households."
