Re: “Why Idaho Kids Don't Go to College

It's only about community colleges? Man did I miss the point. I thought it was about the percentage of kids who attend college after high school and how many students finish with a 4 year degree and the road blocks to attending and finishing.

Re: “Why Idaho Kids Don't Go to College

And the 900lb gorilla is......? The Mormon Church.....boys go on missions before 19 and come back at 20 or 21 and are expected to get married. If you are a girl...you finish high school and marry your bf coming back from his mission....if that doesnt happen, then you go on a mission but you better be married before 25 or you will be considered an "old maid". Which, is all fine, because we have a lot of wonderful family oriented people, who struggle to make it to college given all of their religious rsspnsibilities.
The Go On movement is a crap-show because it doesnt identify this key isue of culture and does little to speak to the total train wreck Luna was and his new plagerizing prodigy Ybarra will become, which we can only expect to be worse. Its all good...the legislature just diverted $10 million from the education budget and put it towards roads. You can't fix the problem for 2 reasons...the people in charge dont care (money talks) and the culture of our state is what it is. Nice people the Mormons, but it is a majority of our culture. Btw, Northern Idaho is a completely different state in itself.

Sorry about the typos...i can barely see the small text.
