MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A new analysis by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction estimates how much money schools across the state could lose under Gov. Scott Walker’s proposed budget.

Walker is proposing that K-12 public school spending be held flat. But it would also eliminate a special aid payment of $150 per student statewide, or $127 million.

The School Administrators Alliance on Thursday posted a breakdown by the state Department of Public Instruction showing how much money schools are getting now thanks to that payment that would go away under Walker’s proposal.

The analysis shows Milwaukee would be the biggest loser, facing a drop of nearly $12.2 million. Madison schools is next with $4.1 million at risk.

Walker has said he’s open to working with the Legislature on increasing aid for schools.
