Weekend Insider: Texas Middle East Education, UT/TT Poll

This week in The New York Times and at texastribune.org, we look at two Texas higher-education institutions finding success in the Middle East, and we discuss the results of the most recent UT/Texas Tribune poll.

Higher education reporter Reeve Hamilton talks about his trip to the Middle East. He found that although some American institutions have struggled to establish themselves there, two Texas schools — Texas A&M University and Houston Community College — are enjoying successful endeavors in Qatar.

And Ross Ramsey sits with University of Texas at Austin professor and Tribune pollster James Henson to discuss the results of the most recent UT/Texas Tribune poll.
