The Texas Education Agency developed the 2015 Texas State Plan to Ensure Equitable Access to Excellent Educators as part of a U.S. Department of Education (ED) requirement that states develop plans to ensure that all students have equal access to a quality education, regardless of race, ethnicity, or family income. Texas has had an equity plan in place since 2005, and the 2015 Texas Equity Plan revises and updates the 2012 plan with input from stakeholders in light of new federal guidance.
