Per Pupil Push at Capitol

Per Pupil Push at Capitol

There’s a push from a Republican lawmaker to increase the amount of money Wisconsin pays for each kid in public school.

Waukesha state Rep. Scott Allen yesterday introduced a plan that would add 300 dollars in each year of the new, two-year state budget to Wisconsin’s per-pupil revenue limit. The state currently sets the base revenue limit for public schools at 10 thousand-dollars per-child. Local schools can then spend more local money on kids, but not every school spends the same amount. Allen says boosting the state minimum will help schools across the state get to a more equal level going forward.
