Transparency for Texas professors
Texas House Bill 2504, a new law requiring universities to post course syllabi, teacher evaluations, and cost of attendance, took effect this fall. Sponsored by state Sen. Florence Shapiro, the purpose of the bill is to help foster transparency. Information about classes will be compiled into a database linked to the Texas State homepage and will also be required to be easily accessible from the universities’ homepages.
