Beyond Go-On

Most of Idaho’s high school graduates aren’t going to college — at least not immediately. They’re taking different paths, breaking stigmas and challenging the narrative that a four-year degree is the golden ticket to success. Our four-story series breaks down the data, and unveils what they are doing after high school — and why it isn’t college.

Favorite Teachers series

Who’s your favorite teacher? Nearly everyone has an answer to that question, because every year, and in every generation, teachers make a lifelong impact.

Somewhere in Idaho, even as you read this, an English teacher is helping a student feel valued when no one else can. A science teacher is stoking the curiosity of a future biologist. A choir teacher is encouraging a student to use their voice proudly, even when silence seems safer.

Our new, ongoing series will feature Idaho’s favorite teachers.

If you went to school in Idaho and have a teacher you’d like us to recognize, whether still in the classroom or retired, contact editor Jennifer Swindell, [email protected]. We’re looking forward to sharing your stories.
