This four-part series examines the challenges journalists, students and others face when trying to access public records. The first part of the series looked into the troubles that come along with accessing public records from law enforcement agencies, which tended to be the most difficult areas for people to obtain the records. The second part concentrated on Iowa school districts, which have improved their compliance in granting access to public records. Other parts of the series focused on the costs that come along with public records and training for workers who are in charge of providing the public with records.
