Higher Education's Future

Why is Idaho 43rd in the nation in the number of 9th graders that go onto finish college? With recent hikes in tuition, will more Idaho students be unable to afford college? And for those who can figure out a way to pay for school, what kind of jobs are waiting for them after graduation?

Joan Cartan-Hansen explores the future of higher education in Idaho - from a student perspective - with the student body presidents of the state's public four-year colleges and universities: Kelby Wilson, University of Idaho; Ross Knight, Idaho State University; and Clay Long, Lewis-Clark State College.
