According to a recent study, New Jersey is among the top ten most educated states in the U.S., beating out Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New York.
The study, "Most and Least Educated States," was conducted by the personal finance website, WalletHub.
The research was based on education attainment, school quality, and achievement gaps between genders and races across all 50 states.
So where does New Jersey land in this study?
Right at number 10! New York follows at number 13, Delaware at number 17 and Pennsylvania sits right at number 28.
