Gov. Abbott proposing Texas teachers make six figures

Governor Greg Abbott is on a roundtable tour around the state, talking to educators about the idea of putting the best teachers on the path to earning more than $100,000 a year. The idea is to keep talented teachers in the classroom by giving them more money. Abbott says the plan would allow districts flexibility to determine who gets the biggest paychecks. He also adds the money will not come from an increase in property taxes. “We want to structure a compensation plan that will put the very best educators on a pathway to earning a six-figure salary,” Abbott said. It will be up to the legislature to determine how to fund the raises. The issue of teacher pay is very much on the minds of local educators. In Houston ISD, the board turned down a proposal to freeze teacher salaries. Instead, teachers will still receive their step pay increases.
