New school money could depend on insurance costs
0 0

A provision in Governor Walker's proposed budget would force school districts to fully comply with his collective bargaining law, in order to receive their share of over $650 million in new funding.

He says all teachers should have to pay at least 12 percent of their health insurance costs.

State Superintendent of schools Tony Evers says not all districts do that. He says some districts may have made cuts in other areas, to provide more coverage.

Walker says his proposal is intended to make sure that any new funding goes directly to the classroom.

Madison is one district that would be affected, but it's unclear how many others it would impact.
