Texas Teacher Careers

The State of Texas has long considered its size as a cultural trademark; the public education system in the state is no exception. In recent years the Texas Board of Education has taken an extraordinary interest in curriculum details that have been motivated in large part by social and political ideology, leading to rewrites of school textbooks on historical and scientific issues. Teachers in Texas face the usual variation in pay scales among districts; the minimum pay scale set by the state agency may be far below prevailing wages in any state and well below what the districts in Texas are paying today.
