Walker manipulates school aids, budget history

In the beginning there was this:
Walker budget will cut $1 b. in school, local aid
Part of his attack on the teaching profession and public service through Act 10:
[Updated several times from 9/1/17] The divide-and-conquer sneaky, partisan and giddly disrespectful Walker "dropped the bomb" on the teaching profession, and the consequences are unfolding...
Fast forward to his 'spank Robin Vos, side-wth-the Senate' 9/20/17 position:
Walker Vetoes Budget Item to Help for Low-Revenue Schools
But now that the campaign is on, there's the  3/12/18 pander:
Gov. Walker signs bill increasing aid for rural schools on Monday
Repeated across his his official and personal Twitter pages:

Enjoyed traveling to northern Wisconsin today to talk about how Wisconsin is working with our historic investments in education, including our Sparsity Aid increase for rural communities – raising the per-student investment from $300 to $400.
Spent this afternoon with students in Erin School District to highlight our historic investment in K-12 education, additional increase in funding for rural schools...

Ditto for his Facebook pages:
Our bipartisan legislation to increase Sparsity Aid for rural communities – from $300 per student to $400 – is on top of our already historic investments in education. Every child in Wisconsin deserves a quality education, regardless of zip code.

Cashton School District will receive an increase in funding like many rural schools throughout the state.

In Racine it looks like he is trying to create a low revenue district.
