Survey of over 25 aged folks showed that WYOMING (okay, just a little pride showing) had the highest rate of residents who had graduated from high school. 90.2%. Utah right behind at 90.1% And Minnesota and Nebraska at 89%. Then it goes downhill to Texas and Mississippi where less than 75% have finished basic schooling. The main factor, according to the AP story, is race/ethnicity. The more minority population, the worse the education level. Wyoming has about 2.3% AmerIndian, 6.4% Hispanic, and less than .8% Black, .6% Asian. Looks like that stats hold some truth. At the same time, Minnesota (#3 from the top) has 3.5% Black, 2.9% Asian, 2.8% Hispanic, 1.1% AmerIndian. Quite a higher number than Wyoming. Is ethnicity/race a factor here?
