Texas schools and universities have a long history of partnering with public television to provide high-quality educational programming. In fact, KUHT in Houston was the first noncommercial educational television station in the nation. In 1982, the Texas Public Broadcasting Association (Texas PBS) was formed to foster collaboration and increase access to education for the benefit of all Texans.
