Comments from Judith Zaffirini

Dual credit coursework is an increasingly critical component of Texas higher education. Thousands of Texas students rely on quality, transferable dual credit courses to get a head start on their college educations and be graduated timely.

SB 50 would enhance the quality of the state's dual credit system. Specifically, it would exempt dual credit courses from Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills (TEKS) requirements and Texas' K-12 accountability end-of-course exams.
