How Idaho Families Can Save For College

Boise High School graduation.

As the incoming Biden administration considers the question of forgiving student debt, one thing is for sure: the cost of a higher education continues to rise. The Millennial generation in particular has felt the sting of thousands of dollars of student loans, causing many in that generation to delay or forgo marriage, homebuying and having children.

So how can families save now to prevent this debt accumulation from happening for future students? Christie Stoll is the Executive Director of IDeal, the Idaho College Savings Program. She shares tools for families to plan for higher education years from now on Idaho Matters.
