Setting the UI president straight

Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries, took issue when University of Idaho President Tim White told legislative budget writers today that higher education provides great benefits to the economy, the environment, security and society. “In my community, we have four people, the only thing they got was high school graduation, and yet they’re the main contributors to our community,” Harwood told White. “The key to being successful is to find something you love to do and doing it – not really the education.”

Harwood’s official legislative bio notes that he’s a high school graduate who holds a welding blueprint reading certification from North Idaho Junior College.
