I'm not calling out only ACS here, but comments like this are exactly why politics should be banned. Yes, he didn't apply a label to anyone in particular, but you can't honestly tell me that this is not instigating. And it's not just this post, there are several others around that I do not waste the time to comment on.
If we're playing that game, I find it interesting that the states that are considered more yuppie than other states seemingly always vote Democratic. <= Sinking to the liberal levels around here, no pun intended.
Heres a link to the smartest states.
Notice that most of the top 10 states vote Democrat.
Also a majority of the bottom ones vote Republican
its just interesting
This study measures people who can't even vote, let alone looking at people who actually do vote.
Yes but people do grow up into educated individuals. Eventually they can vote. As its hard to test education when Adults are no longer in school
This isn't making sense. You need to explain how testing kids at one point in time directly affects the behavior of voting adults at the same point in time, also accounting for the fact that voter participation rates increase the longer someone has been out of school. We'll go easy and not even throw in the effects of inconvenient variables such as people actually moving from state to state at any age level, social promotion, and test scores from anyone above 8th grade. This is an untimed question. Good luck.
Easy its not an exact fix but it does give a good definition of how the education system is in a state. If it ain't broke don't fix it. States with a good system probably aren't gonna take a huge dive to the bottom of the list. However, states at the bottom can make their way to the top. So you can say that the states near the top pretty much have a good system in place. I guess its assuming some but its clearer then me just calling people hillbillies and thats why I posted it. Also, the amount of people moving from state to state is not that great. As for test scores above eigth grade I'm not sure why they wouldn't include those.
Anyways it does give a good idea I'd say. Not given scientific fact but its interesting how it works
