Texas American Federation of Teachers President Louis Malfaro commented today on the Texas House Public Education Committee’s substitute to House Bill 3, which addresses school funding and educator pay:
Now backed up with an initial budget, the House plan is a significant down payment on funding our future and providing much-needed raises for public school employees. We are grateful for the House’s leadership on this critical issue.
