"I don't think so. They aren't paid nearly enough considering everything they have to put up with and all the work they have to do." - Andy Hernandez, retired, Victoria.
"My son's a schoolteacher and I think it's the most underpaid profession there is. I think teachers across the country should be paid more." - Shane Flowers, oil field, Victoria.
"No, I don't. We're putting the future of our youth in the hands of people who don't feel like they're being paid enough. So where is their incentive to go that extra mile." Jody Lacoste, oil field, Tyler.
"From what I know, probably not, because I see them put in so many hours that are not in the classroom just trying to keep up. I think they should be better paid." - Larry Krupala, retired, Cuero.
