In a not-so-surprising bit of fact, California is the "lead educated" state in the Nation. This was actually covered in our last "Wake Up" Segment released yesterday watch below
California takes the top spot as the least-educated state in the nation in a recent finding from the US Census Bureau published this week, reports CNS News.
According to CNS, the Golden State ranks number one due to the number of residents aged 25-years and older who haven’t graduated from high school.
“California ranks No. 1 among the 50 states for the percentage of its residents 25 and older who have never completed ninth grade and 50th for the percentage who have graduated from high school,” writes CNS. The report finds 9.7% of California residents 25 and older have “never completed the ninth grade” and just 82.5% have graduated from High School.
“In fact, the 2,510,370 California residents 25 and older who, according to the Census Bureau, never finished ninth grade outnumber the entire populations of 15 other states,” adds the website.
