I've lived all around the country. Coast to coast. The most religious states are those with the lowest educational standards. But I never lived in the Top 10. I've worked in some of them temporarily but I would never live there. Closest was Texas #11 hated it.
Now I live in Florida #20. If you tossed out Broward and Monroe counties then Florida would have shot up the list to probably number 3 or 4.
I was thinking about that corelation myself when I read this article. I found a chart of high school graduates by state, which may not be the best data to compare to, but it was interesting information. I can't find the exact chart I saw before, but I sure some Googling will yield some information to compare. Thanks for bring the topic to everyones attention.
