Daniel Perez, El Paso Matters
Last year, Paloma Money needed to take a business math course to complete her associate degree in multidisciplinary studies at El Paso Community College. But with four jobs and five classes, it would take a miracle to find the time. She found it in "Tejano Flex Learning."
Tejano Flex Learning is EPCC’s brand of competency-based education, or CBE. The concept, which is gaining popularity around the country, allows students to fast-forward through course material based on their skills and knowledge of the subject.
