The Texas Association of School Boards reports that Senate Bill 4 was filed last week to address school finance.
According to TASB, Senate Bill 4 would fund full-day prekindergarten for educationally disadvantaged students, provide funding for merit pay for teachers, increases funding for low-income students, and provides support for districts to improve reading among educationally disadvantaged students and English language learners up to grade 3. A number of details still need to be worked out in the bill.
The text of Senate Bill 4 can be found here.
