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.
