MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker is shedding more light on his plans for tying aid to schools based on performance.
Walker said Tuesday during a speech at the Wisconsin Technology Council that he envisions making extra money available for both low and high performing schools based on how they do on new state report cards.
Walker says high performing schools or those showing rapid improvement could be eligible for more money. He says failing schools could get more money one time if they present a corrective action plan.
He says the goal is to "reward and replicate success."
Walker also wants to expand charter and voucher school options, a move Democrats oppose because it takes money from public schools.
