The states with the best and worst schools

The states with the best and worst schools
A new report has determined that the United States’ education system is improving.

The bad news is that it still gets a C+.

Recently, education news and research publication Education Week released its 17th annual survey of the status of education in all 50 states. The report, titled "Quality Counts," grades each state based on six key metrics: K-12 achievement; standards, assessment and accountability; the teaching profession; school finance; students’ chances for long-term success; and transitions and alignment. Maryland ranked first for the fifth straight year, with a grade of B+, while South Dakota ranked last, with a D+.

And it's bullshit that the average American IQ is around 100 . . .
It's "pea-can", man.
