As a member of the Education Committee, I supported a bill (LB 1014) that earmarks up to $10 million in performance-based pay plans for school districts. The earmarked funds would come out of new leases for solar and wind powered energy, as designated by the Board of Educational Lands and Funds on land it owns. This bill is the result of conversations the Committee had last year regarding Nebraska's dismal national ranking in teacher pay. As a former educator, I understand the unique role teachers play in shaping the lives of our youth, and I strongly support efforts to find more ways to improve teacher pay.
