Closing Thought–02Feb18

I live in the great state of Mississippi, the Magnolia State, the home of the blues….birthplace of Bo Didley, Elvis Presley and many other great musicians……

I have pointed out of the years that Mississippi seems to always be at the top of everything bad and the bottom of everything good….for instance Mississippi is the most littered state…the top state for diabetes…so on and so on….

And we can add one more issue to the worst list……Mississippi is the least educated state……

A good education often brings greater chances of employment as well as higher income potential—two perks that residents of Mississippi and West Virginia might be at a disadvantage of attaining. That’s based on a list of the most and least educated states in the US, compiled by Wallet Hub, which puts those two at the bottom. Here are the top five in each category, with a score out of 100, based on quality of education and the educational attainment of adults 25 and older:

Most educated (with score out 100):

  1. Massachusetts: 82
  2. Maryland: 76.5
  3. Connecticut: 72
  4. Vermont: 71
  5. Colorado: 70

Least educated:

  1. Mississippi: 21
  2. West Virginia: 22
  3. Louisiana: 23
  4. Arkansas: 27
  5. Alabama: 31

The 5 worse states have Repub government for all 3 units of government….a perfect illustration of how unimportant education is to the GOP.

Peace Out my friends…..chuq
