Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Rylander's E-Texas Commission to Hold Education Hearing In College Station

(Austin)--Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Rylander said education will be the focus of an e-Texas hearing in College Station on Wednesday, Feb. 2, in Room 501 of Rudder Tower on the Texas A&M University campus. Rudder Tower is located on Joe Routt Blvd.

E-Texas is a citizen commission charged with developing recommendations to help Texas state government meet the challenges of the Internet age.

"This hearing will help us find ideas to improve our public education system," she said. "I encourage folks to come out, listen to our experts, and give us feedback on the issues they think are critical to having an educated workforce."

Comptroller's staff and task force volunteers for the e-Texas Education Task Force will lead the hearing, which runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The hearing will focus on impacting education through technology, using technology to enhance parental involvement, and transforming higher education through distance and online learning.

"Nothing is more important than education," Comptroller Rylander said. "We must have an educated workforce for the 21st Century. Our next generation must compete not only with those from New York and California but Europe and Asia as well."
