Huh? This Is Said To Be The Dumbest City In the State Of Alabama
There is one word that I really don't like to throw around so loosely. You never know who you're offending; quite frankly, everyone's definition is different.
That word is DUMB.
After looking at the results of this study, some might consider this place the dumbest city in the state.
I'd rather say, it's just the least educated city.
2022's Most and Least Educated Cities In The United States
Wallet Hub recently determined where the most educated Americans are using their hard-earned degrees.
To come up with the rankings, Wallet Hub said they compared the 150 largest metropolitan statistical areas, across 11 key metrics. Those metrics included:
- Quality of Education Gap
- Racial Education Gap
- Average Quality of Universities
- Share of Adults Aged 25 & Older with a High School Diploma or Higher
- Share of Adults Aged 25 & Older with a Graduate or Professional Degree
- Enrolled Students in Top 1,015 Universities per Capita
Alabama's Education System
It's no secret that Alabama's education system could use a major overhaul.
World Population Review recently ranked the best states for education in 2022 and Alabama was so far down the list I thought there was a typo.
As I scrolled and thought they must've left Alabama off the list entirely, I noticed I was very wrong.
According to World Population View, the state of Alabama has the 4th worst education system in America.
Alabama's Least Educated City
The Wallet Hub study has the least educated city in Alabama listed as Mobile, Alabama.
Out of the 150 cities listed, Mobile was listed as city number 132.
Other cities that made the list include Montgomery, Birmingham, and Huntsville. find out where those cities were listed by clicking here to see the full results of the study.
