Over the last five years, rural schools lost general aid at more than three times the rate of non-rural schools, and nearly a quarter of the rural districts saw general state aid decrease by over 50%, Rep. Katrina Shankland (D-Stevens Point) said Thursday at a news conference calling for greater support for rural schools. “Our rural districts are at a breaking point,” Shankland said.
