View Full Version : Texas education scenario

04-26-2007, 08:46 AM
Ensuring that each child in Texas has a solid education is among the most imperative tasks before Texas Education authorities. For parents, teachers, employers, or members of the community, the education of its children has far-reaching implications on the future of Texas. Educating young people prepares a skilled workforce for tomorrow's competitive economy.

Texas Education experts believe that over the next 35 years, almost half of the new manufacturing jobs in Texas will be in industries related to high technology, including computers, semiconductors, and telecommunications. Preparing workers to function in these industries will enhance Texas' ability to thrive in a competitive market.

In the Texas Education scenario, 46 percent of all students are Anglo, 37 percent are Hispanic, 14 percent African American, and 3 percent are classified as 'Other' racial/ethnic groups. While 54 percent of all students are ethnic minorities, only 24 percent of all teachers are members of minority groups. Almost half (48.1%) of all students in Texas are considered to be 'economically disadvantaged'. The term economically disadvantaged includes children in poverty, but also those living just above the poverty line. Under the Texas Education system, children who are economically disadvantaged are eligible for free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.
