The storyline that the quality of public education in Idaho comes up short is not new. In fact, 36 years ago the Reagan Administration issued A Nation at Risk, a report that, novel at the time, issued a bleak assessment about the state of education in America.
This research report regarding educational attainment is grounded in our commitment to making Idaho a state where our citizens can learn, thrive, and prosper. It shares some realities about Idaho’s current and future landscape of educational attainment and economic mobility. We are hopeful that this data will encourage candid and necessary conversations regarding what citizens want for the future of Idaho.
