Rural schools stand to gain transportation and technology funding under Scott Walker's plan
from Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Gov. Scott Walker plans to offer more support to Wisconsin's rural schools by funneling $20 million more to sparsely populated school districts and offering $10 million more for high-cost transportation aid, according to a statement. He also wants to increase technology grant funding by more than $22 million, create a new training pathway for rural paraprofessionals to become full-time teachers, and put an additional $1 million in the budget to support school fabrication labs.
