State Lawmaker Proposes New Teacher Pay Scale

A member of the Missouri House has filed a proposal allowing school districts to have different pay scales for teachers.

Representative Ed Lewis says his superintendent Doctor Rachelle Jennings says the measure could mean that teachers of popular subjects get paid less regardless of their experience.

The bill is still in a house committee.
