This new report tells us all we need to know about the political climate in this country.
The states with the lowest education are the same states that lead the country in silliness…..
To find out which ones, the site analyzed 18 metrics in two main categories: educational attainment, which looked at the share of adults ages 25 and older who’ve graduated from high school, attended some college, or earned a university or professional degree; and quality of education (ie, the quality of local schools and colleges, high school graduation rates, and racial and gender gaps in educational attainment).
Finally my state of Mississippi is not at the bottom of the list of the best educated states….instead we are 49th.
This study shows the the South leads the way on least educated….
- New Mexico
- West Virginia
WV least educated…well that could explain Manchin.
This proves when you turn your back on education the country will suffer.
Keep the people stupid and you can lead them around by the nose.
Diogenes said…”The foundation of every state is the education of its youth”….if that is true then Mississippi has failed miserably…..the wider picture is that the South has failed miserably.

It looks to me like at least seven of those states were part of The Confederacy, during the Civil War. Does the side they chose during that conflict still have impact in 2022, I wonder?
Best wishes, Pete.
It does indeed…..ignorance then ignorance now. chuq
How long will people say that!
I mean it’s rather easy to put it on ignorance.
To me it’s more (ab)used as an excuse not having to improve.
Texas is not on your list and it would definitely explain Gomert.
Can we really explain Gohmert? LOL Be well chuq
Gomert can be explained in the context of Mary Shelly’s famous literary work.
Gohmert is one of those Tea Party thugs that came to DC to perform not govern. chuq
His performance leaves me with a sense that something is amiss in the upstairs with that one … He actually suggested that we use technology to affect the rotation of earth to address climate change issues …duh!
He is one sandwich short of a picnic….chuq
