At least three reporters covered this week’s meeting of the Idaho Board of Education in Moscow.  Joel Mills of the Lewiston Tribune and Holly Bowen of the Moscow-Pullman Daily News attended the meeting in person. Betsy Russell of The Spokesman-Review watched the streaming video.  Here are their leads from this morning’s papers:

In-state tuition and fees at the University of Idaho will increase by 6.1 percent in 2012-13, the Idaho State Board of Education voted Wednesday afternoon.  (Bowen)

On a mixture of unanimous and split votes, the Idaho State Board of Education approved the tuition and fee increase requests that came before it Wednesday. (Mills)

Students at Idaho’s state colleges and universities will pay more next year, but the tuition and fee increases approved Wednesday by the state Board of Education are considerably lower than the stiff increases of recent years, and board members said the schools are still a bargain. (Russell)

And here’s the Argonaut’s Facebook post from Wednesday on the tuition increase:

In a 5-2 vote, the Idaho State Board of Education approved the proposed 6.1 percent increase of tuition and fees for University of Idaho undergraduates, as well as the proposed increases for non-resident and graduate/professional student fees and tuition during today’s meeting at the UI Student Union Building ballroom.

Which lead bests captures the board’s action? Which one is most likely to entice the reader to delve more deeply into the story?  We’ll talk about these approaches in Friday’s class.
