We’re Pretty Dumb Here in Arizona

Arizona ranks 48th in the nation for the “Smartest State”. This doesn’t surprise me. Nor does it surprise me that Nevada and New Mexico rank 49th and 50th. I was able to manage a near perfect GPA through school…classes were too easy…and I was in one of the supposedly better school districts. It doesn’t help that these three states are growing at a rate that seems to be outpacing the educational system. Most of the top states are in the northeast and have educational systems that have been in place for a really long time. Not sure how Montana ended up 10th, but maybe I’ll move there. Big open spaces and beautiful views.

Maybe Google will come to town and bring some money into the educational system here.
