Higher education is critical to Idaho

Our institutions are investments that have proven their worth to our state and to generations of Idahoans throughout our history, even before statehood.  The numbers bear that out and the investments must continue.

Kindergarten readiness needs more attention

The State Board, in partnership with Idaho AEYC, received a $6 million per year, three-year federal grant to help improve Idaho’s early childhood system “with an eye toward readiness and literacy.”
