Re: “Why Idaho kids don't go to college

Much of it is cultural. If your family and school culture emphasizes higher education, and that's the expectation, then the young people get caught up in the movement and assume that going to college is the goal. I taught at a public school and at Gonzaga Prep, and at the public school, the prevailing student culture emphasized working at a minimum wage job to make payments on a vehicle. Students didn't do homework because they were working eight-hour shifts so they could afford their vehicle, which they needed so they could get to their minimum-wage job. So, the graduates were asked, "What are you going to do after graduation? Get a job? Join the military? Or, go to college?" At Gonzaga Prep, the expectation is that you're going to college. So, graduates are asked, "Which college are you going to attend?"
