Last week… Education committees started seeing more bills making their way through the committee process.
The Senate Education Committee heard presentations from the University of Memphis and from THEC director, Mike Krause, on “College Readiness and Remediation.” The Committee also had 3 bills on it’s agenda that all passed to Calendar.
The House Education Committee heard a presentation from THEC regarding the “State of Higher Education,” noting that some of the challenges it’s facing include rural access and the changing future of work.
