HB3 should be commended for providing teacher merit pay for our most effective teachers and requiring school boards to adopt specific and public early literacy goals and monitor student achievement. HB3 should be expanded to require school boards to adopt literacy and math goals for each school and student demographic. In addition, to provide meaningful, long-term property tax relief to Texas families and business, HB3 should include a 2.5 percent revenue cap or more significant property tax relief.
