To support our growing economy, Texas needs substantial economic growth, adding nearly 8 million new jobs by 2036. Over 75% of those new jobs will soon require a post-secondary credential. Our future depends on education. But more than half of Texans between 25 and 34 have not completed any form of postsecondary education.
To meet the demands of a 21st century economy, Texas will require meaningful changes to our education system. Texas needs – right now – innovative thinking and sustained investments to produce a workforce that will maintain our state’s prosperity.
