Idaho ‘Go On’ numbers still dropping

As Idaho continues to emphasize college attendance, here’s an interesting set of numbers. College attendance declined this fall in 37 states, including Idaho. Nationwide, college attendance dropped by 1.7 percent this year, according to National Student Clearinghouse Research Center statistics released Wednesday. All told, 19.2 million students were enrolled in college this fall. Idaho enrollment decreased slightly. In all, 96,886 students are enrolled in Idaho colleges and universities, down 0.5 percent from 2014-15. Enrollment decreases were steepest at two-year colleges and for-profit universities, according to the report. Older students, over age 24, accounted for much of the enrollment decrease/Kevin Richert, IdahoED NEWS. More here.
