The People’s Republic of Massachusetts has been named the smartest state in the USA. Judging from how the majority of my smarty pants neighbors voted in the last election, I’m not so sure.
BOSTON (CBS) – A new survey says Massachusetts is most-educated state in the nation.
The Kauffman Foundation looked at the education of each state’s work force.
It found 61-percent of residents in the Commonwealth have some college education and 16-percent have advanced degrees.
Maryland and Colorado were second and third in the survey, followed by three New England states – Connecticut, Vermont and New Hampshire.
More than 60-percent of New Hampshire residents have been to college and more than 11-percent have advanced degrees.
Advanced degrees don’t translate to smarts. Look no further than the current occupant of the Oval Office for proof.
