Haslam To Discuss Plan To Increase 2-year Degrees

Gov. Bill Haslam is still pushing an initiative to increase the number of Tennesseans with at least a two-year college degree or certificate. The governor is scheduled to talk more about the "Drive to 55" plan in Nashville today. He announced the initiative in his State of the State address earlier this year and has been working on it over the past months. Today he is expected to give an update on its progress. 32% of Tennesseans have a two-year degree or higher. Haslam's goal is to raise that number to 55% by 2025.
