Higher Education

In the United States, 65% of future jobs will require higher education, but only 39% of Texans have earned a college degree or workforce credential. The gap between market demand and education completion must narrow if Texas is to remain a leader in business and industry. For this reason and many more, higher education is a key impact area for Educate Texas.
We proudly support strategies that prepare students to succeed in today’s workforce — whether by earning a two-year or four-year degree or a technical certificate. Educate Texas works with state agencies, school districts, high-performing charter schools, and higher education institutions to design and launch high-impact programs that reduce barriers to success after high school. We also work with stakeholders from a variety of industries to educate policymakers and inform public policy affecting higher education in Texas.
