No matter what Walker claims, rural schools in Wisconsin continue to suffer and slide
... It’s worth noting that when Scott Walker is flying around the state at
taxpayer-funded campaign stopsevents promoting added spending on K-12 education in the 2017-19, that all of those extra funds were put into per-pupil aid. That means those rural schools that Vinehout described, the ones in areas that are declining in population and enrollment, aren’t getting as much of a benefit as other districts.
Which helps to explain Wisconsin still had 66 school referenda in April to allow schools to tax and spend more, despite those increased aids and other pre-election boost in sparsity aid and flexibility for low-revenue districts. Most of those passed, including 27 of the 31 operating referenda, but the fallout from one of the few failures was revealed this week. ...
Update ... nothing changed 2015 as Walker continues to try and destroy public education system !

A quote from Chalkboard at CapTimes :
While Kreutzer and the New Berlin folks were praising what Walker had done for their district, outside the door there were dozens of other school board members from across Wisconsin. They didn't have such rosy things to say about the impact of the budget on their communities, and they weren't allowed into the press conference. Their hope was to talk with reporters as they exited the meeting, they said.
