A College Education Affects Income More In Idaho Than In Other States
Idahoans with a bachelor’s degree earn close to $32,000 more per year on average than those with only a high school diploma. That’s according to a new study from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute.
The new study also shows the gap widens around Boise, where people with a bachelor’s degree earn almost $38,000 more. And folks with college educations in Idaho see a higher percentage of income growth than folks in other states.
Joining Idaho Matters is Michael Petrilli, president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute and Terry Ryan, the CEO of Boise-based school choice non-profit Bluum, to talk more about what this means. Bluum supported the study.
