After being told this session was going to be Higher Ed's year to receive more funding, the pandemic hit. Everyone was told that every department would take a hit. The Texas House released a budget decreasing Higher Ed by 13.5% and increasing that of public ed by 3.2%. The Senate's budget cut to Higher Ed is even steeper. (see article here) Obviously, public ed is important, but in a year when so many people have lost jobs and need to be re-skilled, this is the year to invest in Higher Ed!
