School finance commission digs into the issue of teacher compensation
Now they’re starting to get into the weeds, plus working groups are appointed for revenue, expenditures, and outcomes in education
Education Commissioner Mike Morath’s proposed teacher
incentive pay plan, modeled on one used by the Dallas Independent School
District, has re-emerged as part of the scope of the Texas
Commission on Public School Finance.
Chair Scott Brister
signaled early, at the governor’s request, the 13-member appointed panel would
take up how money could be used most effectively as well as how to fund
education. That’s resulted in the appointment of three working groups: revenue,
expenditures and outcomes.
