The damage cap is for non-economic damages only, you can certainly have a $10M verdict on lost wages, medical expenses, futures, etc..

Yes, they do-->
"Any teacher who begins employment with HPISD without a Master's Degree shall be responsible for completing their degree within six years..."

I did some quick spot-checking on the HPISD school websites and nearly all teachers have a Master's or are working towards one-->

UP Elem Kindergarten - 6 teachers, 4 with MA and 2 currently enrolled in MA

Armstrong Elem 4th grade- 6 teachers, all with MA


Hyer Elem- no public teacher bios

Bradfield Elem 3rd grade- 6 teachers, 3 with MA's, 1 1st year teacher from Eanes ISD (Austin Westlake), 2 who appear to be between years 3-6'with no mention of MA

Bradfield Elem Kindergarten - 6 teachers, 5 with MA. 1 without public bio.

Middle & high school- no public bios

I would think that all those factors listed do lower the income of the Park Cities compared to Southlake for instance, but I would also add I would also think Park Cities residents spend a larger share of their incomes on housing than they do in Southlake.

Masters degree in their field (such as chemistry) or in education?

Huge difference.

Either are accepted. You tend to see more elementary teachers with M Ed and more high school teachers with a master's or even PhD in their subject matter, although of course some high school teacher have the MEd.
