Conclusions differ as to whether Texas is making progress on higher ed goals
The Public School
Finance Commission this week revealed a sharp division over whether Texas
was on track to meet the goals set out by the state’s 60x30 Plan.
If the 60x30 Plan doesn’t sound familiar, it likely will
next session. Many of the early goals of the Public School
Finance Commission hinge on efforts to add incentives to meet the goals of the
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board’s plan, which suggests 60 percent of
all adults in Texas will have a degree or certificate by 2030.
