UW-Madison's Nicholas Hillman was recently quoted in two news articles from the Wisconsin State Journal and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel about Gov. Scott Walker's 2017-19 budget proposals. The Wisconsin State Journal article is headlined: "Experts see flaws in Scott Walker's plan for UW System performance funding." Hillman has studied performance-based funding extensively, and the State Journal quotes Hillman on some of the potential issues with Walker's plans. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel article is headlined, "Scott Walker proposes ranking UW campuses to divide new money," and it quotes Hillman saying studies show it is better to judge each campus individually rather than pitting schools against one another in this performance-based funding model.
