33-4602 Public Policy.

Public policy. The legislature hereby recognizes and declares that substantial economic and social benefits accrue to the state because of an educated citizenry. The legislature further recognizes that certain talented students, because of their social, cultural and economic circumstances are "at-risk" of failing to obtain the education necessary to realize their potential and that encouraging these at-risk students to enroll in Idaho postsecondary educational institutions is an important element for assuring the future prosperity of the state.
