    AZ is the dumbest state in the union!!!

    Per an analysis by MorganQuitno.com dealing with schools and edjumacation.

    Arizona is Dumb
    Each year Morgan Quitno Press conducts a number of surveys about the cities and states of the U.S. Recently, the company announced the results of the annual Smartest State award. The press release announced "... Vermont as the winner of its 4th annual Smartest State award. Arizona comes in last."

    How Were The State Rankings Determined?
    There were 21 factors, some of which are considered positive and some negative. To calculate the Smartest State rankings, the 21 factors were divided into two groups: those that are “negative” for which a high ranking would be considered bad for a state, and those that are “positive” for which a high ranking would be considered good.

    An example of a negative factor is the number of high school dropouts, where a high number is worse than a low number. An example of a positive factor is the average teacher salary, where a higher number is a better number.

    After all the 21 factors are counted up, and the positives and negatives calculated, here are the "smartest states" and the ones that are not; you can find Arizona is at the very bottom of the list.

    Top Ten States
    1. Vermont
    2. Connecticut
    3. Massachusetts
    4. New Jersey
    5. Maine
    6. Minnesota
    7. Virginia
    8. Wisconsin
    9. Montana
    10. New York

    Bottom Ten States

    41 Tennessee
    42 Hawaii
    43 Alabama
    44 Alaska
    45 Louisiana
    46 California
    47 Nevada
    48 New Mexico
    49 Mississippi
    50 Arizona

    I've been telling you guys, I ain't too bright!

    In a related study, it was determined that when Mark moved from Georgia to Arizona, it raised the average IQ levels of both states.
