When looking for a new place to live, one of the biggest concerns for parents will likely be the schools in the area and there’s no doubt within a state there are some neighborhoods where schools are much better than others. But sometimes no matter how hard you look for a good school you may run into a problem because the state you’re living in just isn’t up to snuff, and according to a new report there are definitely some states where the education system is in need of major improvement.

Well, 24/7 Wall Street reviewed the 2018 edition of the Quality Counts report, released by Education Week, to determine the states with the best and worst schools in the U.S. The report looked at things like school finances, student achievement, and environmental factors to rate the strength of a state’s school system.

Massachusetts schools lead in three categories, chances of success, school finance, and achievements, with the state having an 87.5% high school graduation rate, and 63.4%% of kids having at least one parent with a college degree, which is the fourth highest of all states.
