State Seeks More College Grads
(AP) – The state Board of Education is gathering input from the public on a campaign to double the number of Idaho adults between the ages of 25 and 34 with a college degree or certificate. Trustees are expected to review the Complete College Idaho plan at a June meeting. Board spokeswoman Marilyn Whitney says trustees will first accept public comments through May 15. Idaho’s plan is part of a national campaign aimed at making sure 60 percent of adults between the ages of 25 and 34 hold an associate or bachelor’s degree by 2020, up from the 38 percent now claiming this status. In Idaho, about 31 percent of Idaho residents between those ages have a college degree or credential from a professional technical school.
