Connecticut Ranked #1 as Best State for K-12 Education

CT Education
For the second consecutive year, Connecticut ranks first in the United States for its grade K-12 education system, according to a new ranking of states.

An analysis by the financial website SmartAsset found that 75 percent of Connecticut high school graduates go on to attend college within 12 months of graduation, the third-highest college attendance rate in the U.S.

Connecticut also has the seventh-highest rate of participation in the advanced placement (AP) program, with 42 percent of 11th- and 12th- graders taking an AP class in 2015.

Following Connecticut in the Top 10 are New Jersey, Massachusetts and Delaware, the only other states to receive an "A." Connecticut, New Jersey and Massachusetts also ranked 1-2-3 a year ago.
