Ready Texas: Stakeholder Convening. Proceedings Report
Intercultural Development Research Association
With the adoption of substantial changes to Texas high school curricula in 2013 (HB5), a central question for Texas policymakers, education and business leaders, families, and students is whether and how HB5 implementation impacts the state of college readiness and success in Texas. Comprehensive research is needed to understand the implications of HB5 implementation for various student groups and Texas as a whole. Some research and evaluation is already underway; other questions need to be examined. The Ready Texas: Stakeholder Convening brought together policymakers, education, community, business and family leaders in Austin in February 2016 to discuss the current status of HB5 implementation and research. The purpose was to gather input on key questions about implementation of HB5 to inform the design of a comprehensive study and to connect cross-sector leaders who are studying or working on various facets of the implementation. This work also will be of interest to educators, policymakers, and community, family, student and business leaders nationally who seek to assure that all students have access to high quality curricula and learning opportunities that prepare them for post-secondary access and success.
