Still Another Idaho Last For Education

It's a statistic that Idaho's been fighting for years -- ranking at the bottom in the country when it comes to students continuing their education after high school. Five years ago, the Gem State was ranked 43rd and several agencies started a campaign to improve those numbers. But instead, Idaho dropped and is now ranked 50th in the nation. In 2009, the Albertson Foundation launched the "Go On" campaign. They were trying to raise awareness to push students to go on to college or trade school after graduation. But now, the number of students doing so seems to dropping, as Idaho's rank in this category has dropped to last in the country/Karen Zatkulak, KTVB. More here.
