Texas schoolteachers could soon be getting more money.

An overhaul of public school classrooms has won approval in the State House.

Under the legislation, teachers would recieve a minimum 3-percent pay raise and begin incorporating digital technology in the school curriculum.

The bill also proposed moving the start of the school year to the day after Labor Day, beginning in 2006.

The bill now goes to the State Senate.
