Wisconsin Led Nation In School Spending
Despite cuts to state school aid in 2010, and slower growth of school revenue
limits in 2010 and 2011, Wisconsin per student spending increased 2.6% in 2010 and 3.6% in 2011. That led the nation. Todd Berry with the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance did the study.
Berry says the largest part of any school budget, compensation, was largely responsible for above average growth in Wisconsin’s per student spending.
