Greg Neft, KSL NewsradioThere is some worry among future Utah teachers about their counterparts in Mexico filling teaching jobs here and making more money to start.

For one special education student, it's a question of quality. Becky Holden says, "We have quite a bit that we have to go through, and is it the same for people who are coming from other countries to teach?

Holden says she's not pleased teachers from Mexico will make more here, either. "I'm not exactly very happy about that at all."

But she's also keeping an open mind. She says if the teacher has more schooling than she does, then she can understand the difference in pay.

Teachers normally start at $27,000, but teachers from Mexico will earn $35,000.
