If your child is receiving the best grade in their school, they are not getting a fair share of their funding.
For example, in the past two years the average public school has received $1,664,821 from the federal government.
The schools with the highest average state funding per student are:State-run public schools receive a much higher percentage of the federal grant money than local public schools.
The average public schools in Wisconsin receives about $2,958,739 from the U.S. Department of Education’s Title I program.
That means the average Wisconsin public school receives about two-thirds of Title I funding, or about $17,000 per student.
State-operated public schools received about $4,068,819 in Title I aid in 2016, according to the Wisconsin Department of Administration.
The state receives about half of this money through federal aid.
State schools receive the majority of federal Title I money.
Schools in the state get about three-quarters of Title II money, or $4.2 million.
But public schools get only about one-third of Title III, or nearly $2 million, according, the Wisconsin State Journal.
The state has not spent Title I funds on any public schools since 2015.
The budget proposal in the 2016 budget calls for ending Title I and increasing funding for public schools to be more competitive in a bid to attract the best and brightest students.
The Department of Justice said in a 2016 report that public schools are underfunded.
That was in response to the federal lawsuit that was brought against the Wisconsin state in 2015.
