(IDAHO FALLS) – A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that Idaho is falling behind neighboring states in the number of college graduates. Local News 8 reports that only 24 percent of Idahoans over the age of 25 have a degree beyond a high school diploma. Experts say that will weigh heavily with future employment when an estimated 60 percent of jobs will require a degree by 2018.
