AMARILLO -- Attorney General and Republican gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott paid a visit to Amarillo, today.

Abbott is promoting his third phase of his "Educating Texans" policy plan.

Abbott says as Texas Governor he would seek bonuses for high school teachers whose students perform well on college readiness exams.

Abbott faces Democratic Senator Wendy Davis in November.

Davis' education plan would also give teachers raises and would give students and teachers aides interested in teaching what she says would be a clearer path for their education.
