Texas poised to fund community colleges based on student outcomes
24 May 2023
Bipartisan legislation that would overhaul how Texas funds its community colleges is heading to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk for approval after the House agreed to accept the Senate’s amendments Wednesday.
Last week, the Senate unanimously approved a House bill to fund the state’s community colleges based on how many of their students graduate with a degree or certificate or transfer to a four-year university. Currently, schools are largely funded based on the number of hours students spend in a classroom.
