I am skeptical... We can discuss methodology all day, but I see several states there that from personal experiance are in direct contradiction to this supposed survey/report/chart.

It is unlikely...NO IMPOSSIBLE that Florida, and some of these other Southern states finish ahead of Utah, Colorado, etc... Impossible. I dunno what imaginary Data was used, but states with classically low test scores and High scholl graduation rates do not rate higher than states with traditionally HIGH Scores and Graduation rates...

Well, at least we have good weather most of the year and awesome twisty roads. I suppose there's a slight tradeoff in that.
