This week the State Board of Education nearly killed off one of the state’s longtime education goals.For more than a decade the state has hoped to see 60 percent of Idaho’s young adults hold a postsecondary degree or certificate to meet projected workforce needs.

But one State Board member said the goal is a joke.

We’ll explain what happened, plus recap a full week of legislative action.
