Improving Postsecondary Success
By 2030, over 60% of jobs will require a postsecondary credential. Currently, only 22% of Texas students earn a postsecondary degree by the age of 24.
By providing quick and affordable pathways to multiple self-sustaining wage credentials, community colleges are uniquely positioned to meet the demand for re-skilling and up-skilling Texas students. However, state funding for community colleges has steadily declined for the past 30 years.
