4th in the nation. what about you?

My state (Mississippi) ranked 4th in the nation for worst school systems.
Like I didn't already know that. We also have the highest grocery tax, one of the highest in obesity (# 1 last year) and some of the lowest paying jobs.

What about your state? Do you know where your state stands? Are you happy with it or upset?

Me personally I wish we could just pack up and move.

The state of IL as a whole is not too impressive (looks like we're 28), as there are some low funded, crappy districts. There are also some very good districts, mine being one of them. :) I've worked in the crappy ones in years past, and definitely SEE the differences, and understand the WHYS of other districts not performing well. It's a shame really.

My husband has family there. W live in Brandon. Near Jackson. I like it ok.
Just wish Mississippi itself was a better place for education and the taxes suck!
