  • Latino students are falling behind in Idaho schools.
  • A rise in pediatric eating disorders.
  • A chat with a New York Times bestelling author. 

- A new report from the Idaho Statesman and Idaho EdNews shows that Latino students are still significantly behind non-Latino students throughout the state. Idaho Matters looks further into the data and why Latino students are unable to get ahead of their peers educationally.

- The Treasure Valley has seen an increase in childhood eating disorders recently. But why are we seeing this trend? We talk to one pediatrician about this startling trend and what parents and doctors can do to reverse it. 

- Cynthia Hand has spent her entire life pursuing a writing career. But the Boise-based author didn't imagine her path would be in the young adult book world, where she's been on the New York Times Bestseller list. Her ninth book is set to come out November 5, and she'll give a preview of the story for Idaho Matters.
