It has long been said that one of the best ways to address low incomes and high unemployment, as we see in the Rio Grande Valley, is through education. So it’s good to see educational opportunities continue to grow for people in this region.
Local public, private and charter schools show steady improvement, and the continued growth of the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley benefits many students. Area community colleges also are helping thousands of students, not only with the courses, degrees and certificates they offer but with the valuable steps they are taking to help students transition from high school to four-year universities.
