More support for bachelors’ degrees at community colleges

“TEXAS LAWMAKERS MIGHT let community colleges offer bachelors’ degrees,” Texas Tribune’s Matthew Watkins -- “College administrators across the state are hoping to convince Texas lawmakers to authorize them to begin offering four-year degrees in a limited number of fields. It's a goal they have been working toward for years, and this year chances are stronger than ever that they'll succeed because powerful members of the House and Senate appear to support the idea. Right now, just three schools have that right — South Texas College, Midland College and Brazosport College. But more than a dozen lawmakers have filed bills that would let some or all schools in the state add four-year programs.
