Well, what's the version of your illustrator?

I am using CC 2015, and by the default when I save the file as svg and it has text in it, it's stay as text.

When I save the file as svg, there's fonts setting, and in "Type" field, select SVG if you want the text to stay as the text.

Here's the screen:
