States ranked: from smartest to dumbest

http://cnn.netscape.cnn.com/news/package.jsp?name=fte/smartstates/smartstates

The dumbest, for the third year in a row, is New Mexico.

These are the findings of the Education State Rankings, a survey by Morgan Quitno Press of hundreds of public school systems in all 50 states. States were graded on a variety of factors based on how they compare to the national average. These included such positive attributes as per-pupil expenditures, public high school graduation rates, average class size, student reading and math proficiency, and pupil-teacher ratios. States received negative points for high drop-out rates and physical violence.

There is humor in the fact that Texas and West Virginia tied. Just goes to show that ignorant redneck fucks are equal, lol. Ironically, I have had addresses in both states *aawww fuck* :p

I can guess which way you're going to fall...

I'm dismayed at California's #43. Oh well? I got in the top five in standardized test scores in my school, what else do they want me to do? :thumbsup:
