Who (or what?) does the internet think it is, telling us Idahoans that we're stupid?

Whatever it (or he? she?) is, the world wide web has staked its claim: Idaho is the dumbest state in the country.

According to Safehome.org, Idaho is the least-educated state in America when it comes to a few statistics:

  • Less than 20% of adults 25 years and older have a bachelor's degree
  • Average high school graduation rate: 80%
  • Median SAT score: 993/1600

The numbers aren't great, and certainly don't paint the Gem State in a flattering light.

Before we all get up in arms, it certainly looks like all these statictics are legit, coming from the Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Education.

If the facts really are true, do you feel like that's even close to accurate? Does it seem like Idaho really is the most uneducated state in the country? Holler.
