Wisconsin’s public school system is one of the best in the country, according to an analysis by the personal-finance website WalletHub. Wisconsin is ranked fifth on WalletHub’s list of “Best School Systems in America.”
The report examined each state across 17 metrics, ranging from student-teacher ratio to average SAT and ACT scores to dropout rate. According to the report, Wisconsin has the lowest percentage of public school students in grades 9 to 12 who reported being threatened or injured with a weapon on school property.
The report places Massachusetts at the top of the list of states with the best school systems — with New Jersey, Connecticut, and Vermont ahead of Wisconsin.
