JACKSON, Miss- A new study shows that Mississippi cites are struggling when it comes to how educated their citizens are.
Personal finance website WalletHub looked at more than 150 cities in determining the most and least educated states in the U.S.
The highest ranked Mississippi city was Jackson at #90 followed by the Gulfport-Biloxi-Pascagoula area at #118. Both areas scored poorly in ‘Education Attainment’ rank and ‘Quality of Education & Attainment Gap’.
The most educated city was Ann Arbor, Michigan.
In states with an poorly educated workforce, the average median wage is $15 and hour compered to $19-$20 an hour in states where 40 percent or more of the workforce holds a bachelors degree or higher.
