    The smartest state in the union for the second consecutive year is Massachusetts.

    The dumbest, for the third year in a row, is New Mexico.

    These are the findings of the Education State Rankings, a survey by Morgan Quitno Press of hundreds of public school systems in all 50 states. States were graded on a variety of factors based on how they compare to the national average. These included such positive attributes as per-pupil expenditures, public high school graduation rates, average class size, student reading and math proficiency, and pupil-teacher ratios. States received negative points for high dropout rates and physical violence.

    How does YOUR state rank?

    1. Massachusetts
    2. Connecticut
    3. Vermont
    4. New Jersey
    5. Wisconsin

    I hope you're not talking about your current country of residence

    By the way, california wasn't that surprising at the bottom.

    Arnold + surfing can't be a good combination.
