Graduate

A recent article has attempted to label the 10 “smartest” and “dumbest” states in the U.S., according to financial news service TheStreet.

Both Arkansas and Oklahoma made the list of “dumbest” states, which was based on each state’s percentage of the population that held bachelor’s degrees. The writers of the article said there is a direct correlation between higher education and the poverty line.

Arkansas came in at number two on the list of “dumbest” states with 18.9 percent of the state’s population holding a bachelor’s degree, according to TheStreet.

Oklahoma placed at nine on the list of “dumbest” states with 22.7 percent of the state’s population holding a bachelor’s degree, according to TheStreet.
