Democratic lawmakers in Texas spread out a recommendation that would give a $15,000 raise in all cases for all educators in the state and a 25% raise for support staff on Tuesday.
Administrators trust the raises can assist with tending to the need for more qualified instructors across the state.
"When I'm debilitated, I need to make sub plans at 3 a.m., get parent messages late at night, and I spend Sunday preparing for the week," said educator Deanna Perkins.
Perkins said she has thought about leaving the profession.
"Assaults on educators, absence of emotional well-being assets have made it a perilous climate, then I consider my understudies who come visit from center school to their 20s, and it brings me back," she said.
A typical Texas educator compensation is $58,000 per our latest reports.
That is the ninth most reduced in the country.
"It's no big surprise many instructors are leaving the profession. We have a crisis educator lack in this state. It requires crisis activity by the Texas lawmaking body," said State Rep. James Talarico (D-Round Rock).
