Mason City Survey identifies barriers to post secondary education, Globe Gazette

MASON CITY — Money and child care.

Those are the primary barriers to postsecondary education for North Iowans, according to an online survey conducted by Mason City College Access Network, or Mason City-CAN, in February.

“That’s pretty much what we thought was going on, but we didn’t have the data,” said Jeanette Cink, Mason City-CAN project coordinator. “Now we found out what it is and we can use it to help people further their education.”
