Educated Population icon

To ensure progressive improvement of educational attainment throughout the plan years, Texas set statewide benchmarks of 48 percent by 2020 and 54 percent by 2025.

Two-year institutions can support the effort to reach the goal of 60 percent by 2030 by strengthening connections and partnerships with local and regional organizations. Four-year institutions can help by building or strengthening similar connections.

 

Regional data presented here are based on residence reported on the American Community Survey (US Census).
