Idaho’s Gender Gap in Go-On Rates

The Idaho State Board of Education wants to increase the college go-on rate in Idaho. In order to do that, the Board needs to understand which students do and which students do not choose to go on to college. This paper shows that female students are much more likely than male students to go on to college. It shows that the gender gap is persistent across time and across all regions in Idaho. It also suggests future research for understanding why the gender gap in go-on rates exists.
