The article reports on the need of finance-related education in Texas. Educating the Texans about financial management in an era of reduced government assistance will challenge the state's colleges and universities, but innovative financial tools and strategies have been developed for meeting the needs of higher education. Texas has 1.2 million students in some 200 higher education institutions in the state, including 42 public colleges and universities, 68 community supported junior colleges, 58 private four-year colleges, and 32 private junior colleges.
