  • Is that the teacher's "intellectual property?" Maybe a template or standard created by an isd ended up being tweaked copied and sold? I'm just guessing and thinking out loud.

  • ALTON: It's a shame Texas teachers are so poorly paid, unless they're coaches, that they have to make such efforts to catch up by whatever means they find.
