Proof in Data


49% of Idaho children enter kindergarten unprepared, 1 out of 3 Idaho 3rd graders are reading below grade level, and 58% of Idaho adults have no post-secondary credential. These numbers can be discouraging, but at RISE, we’re fonder of these numbers, as they show that the work of our partnership and devoted educators across the valley is paying off:
