Nice to see my home state of Massachusetts has by far the smartest kids..

Massachusetts
4th grade students at or above the advanced level, Math: 12 percent
Number of states that performed better, at a statistically significant level: 0
8th grade students at or above the advanced level, Math: 17 percent
Number of states that performed better, at a statistically significant level: 0
4th grade students at or above the advanced level, Reading: 13 percent
Number of states that performed better, at a statistically significant level: 0
8th grade students at or above the advanced level, Reading: 5 percent
Number of states that performed better, at a statistically significant level: 0
Average number of states that performed better than Massachusetts, per test: 0
That's right, no other state beat us... no wonder my sister's kids are always in the national science finals...
and i'm sure boston has more bartender with PHDs than any other state, ok it might be in history, psychology,  languages etc..  at least you can chat with them on almost any topic...  would still be in boston if it was not so cold...  even vermont is number 2 and new hampshire is 4th in terms of smartest kids...  sorry mississippi, d.c. and west virginia you rank the worst in the country... or as they might say they're the worstest
