Statement by Gov. Perry on Senate Bill 441
Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the passage of Senate Bill 441:
Today, lawmakers approved legislation that keeps Texas' workforce at the top of its game and ensures employers have the qualified workers they need to fill high demand fields by providing hardworking Texans with a pathway to earn technical certificates or associate degree as quickly and efficiently as possible. This common sense approach uses competency-based learning, which gives students credit for subjects and skills they've already mastered, saves time, money and classroom space.
