Study: In-state grads likely to stay

Seventy-seven percent of Idaho residents who graduated from in-state public colleges or universities from 2010 to 2014 were employed in Idaho a year later, according to a new research report from the Idaho Department of Labor and the Office of the State Board of Education; and five years later, 67 percent still were employed in Idaho. Among out-of-state students attending Idaho colleges or universities, 39 percent were employed in Idaho a year after they graduated; that number fell to 28 percent five years after graduation/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Yet, Idaho does a poor job supporting higher education. Thoughts?
