An anonymous reader writes: WSJ has an article which makes many inferences regarding the number of college degrees per state for the years 1990, 2000 and 2010. There's an interactive chart that shows the data in percentages. I'm heartened to see that my state (Utah) has a very low fraction of dumb, er folks without high school diplomas(9.4%) yet we only get an average number of folks to graduate college.(27%).
The WSJ anecdotally correlates success with brain power. In my state I can anecdotaly say that we push our kids through high schools without making them learn anything.
What can you infer from this data?
