Gov. Kevin Stitt has made cooperation among the state’s public education systems a priority for his administration. In his first State of the State address, he called for tearing down the “silos” separating common education, career tech and higher education. In Tulsa County, that work has been going on for decades. Key players in those efforts are Tulsa Community College and Tulsa Technology Center. Through a variety of initiatives, they connect high school students with post-secondary education and the workforce while also serving many adult students. One of those connections is concurrent enrollment, which allows students to enroll in college courses while still in high school. TCC, the state’s largest two-year college, also has the largest concurrent enrollment in the state.
