CSI: 30% of students still in high school

The president of the College of Southern Idaho says about 30 percent of students at the college are still in high school. President Jeff Fox told the Idaho Board of Education on Thursday that more than 4,000 high school students from 32 Idaho counties are expected to take dual-credit classes this school year. Fox says that's a significant change in the student population and diversity. The Times-News reports that the Idaho Department of Education in 2014 launched the Fast Forward program that pays for juniors and seniors to take college-level classes/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Has any of your children taken advantage of dual enrollment?
