Most educated states? We’re 24th


Wallet Hub, a free-credit-score website, says Delaware is the 24th most educated state behind Massachusetts, Maryland, Colorado, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Virginia, Minnesota, Washington, New Jersey, Utah, Oregon, New York, Kansas, Hawaii and Illinois.

WalletHub’s analysts examined what they dubbed the key determinants of a well-educated population: educational attainment, school quality, and achievement gaps between genders and races. They compared all 50 states across 11 total metrics grouped by category. The data set ranged from “percentage of adults aged 25 and older with at least a high school diploma” to “average university quality” to “gender gap in educational attainment.”

They also ranked cities and metropolitan areas. The Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington area came in 42nd.
