In my experience, a good education pays for it's self.  Not only can school after high school graduation help you earn more in the long run.  College is also a rite of passage in my mind.  You head off to college, some leave town for the first time but some stay.  Either way you learn things about yourself and get to experience things you've never tried before.

Wallethub had the most and least educated states ranked.  Happy to say Montana made the top 20.  Yeah, bunch of smarty pants walking around here.  The least educated state is West Virginia.  Wallethub used things like quality of schools, how many people had degrees in the state to figure out which states were more educated than others.  Maybe I'll skip that West Virginia vacation this summer.
