Texas House bill could change minimum pay for teachers

Posted: Updated:

House Bill 2543 could do away with the minimum teacher salary already in place statewide. Right now the minimum is $27,540, but if the bill makes it through the legislature, school districts could determine the minimum pay.

The bill would also allow districts to determine pay based on standardized test scores and annual employee evaluations.

The Association of Texas Professional Educators opposes the measure.

"What we really oppose is the fact that this would remove the minimum salary schedule so districts would be allowed to pay a lot less to teachers and there wouldn't be a consistency across the state," says spokesman Roger Gutierrez.

If passed, the changes would take effect as early as the 2015-2016 school year.
