As legislators consider the administration’s voucher proposal this week, it is important that they know teachers, parents and faith leaders are adamantly opposed to privatizing our public schools.

Getting all state money into paychecks

The governor’s initial budget unveiled on March 4 has $71.3 million in salary increases for “teachers and other positions funded through the BEP formula for next year.” It’s a clear statement what the administration believes should happen. However, in the very next line, the governor budget recognizes a problem TEA has been battling for the past several years.   

“The amount of the salary increases will depend on each LEA’s salary schedule and structure, but if applied across-the-board, this would be a 2.5% salary increase.”
