Here’s a story that bears watching:
State starts process to withhold millions in MPS funds

The lead paragraph clearly captures the potential significance:

“Wisconsin’s superintendent of public instruction took the first step Thursday toward withholding up to $175 million in federal funds from Milwaukee Public Schools because of the district’s failure to meet yearly academic progress targets required under law.”

Is there a precedent for this in other states?

As the story makes clear, several steps in this process still must play out.
