In the 2015 Education Data Book, one of the more painful truths reported was that, among the state’s working professionals over the age of 25, only 22.5% held bachelor’s degrees; the lowest such percentage amongst states in the west.

A number of the state’s schools have taken up the charge, improving upon their already solid online options.
