State superintendent proposes increase in aid to Wis. schools


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's state superintendent proposes a $615 million increase in state funding for schools. But Superintendent Tony Evers also wants to re-work the formula used to determine how much money each school district gets.

Superintendent Evers released his plan Monday. His proposal has to be approved by the Legislature and Governor Scott Walker before it would take effect.

Evers' plan calls for increasing aid to schools by 2.4 percent in the first year of the budget and 5.5 percent in the second year. No schools would lose funding under Evers' plan.
