School funding report: Wisconsin dealt with recession impact later than most states
from Wisconsin Reporter
So the sky didn't fall after all. Wisconsin school spending grew in 2011, the year Gov. Scott Walker and the Republican-led Legislature cut deeply to cure a $3.6 billion budget shortfall, according to a new study by the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance. What remains unknown, given a federal data lag, is how Wisconsin will compare to other states beginning in 2012, the first full year of the cuts to state aid to public education. Through 2011, the Badger State stacks up pretty well.
