NH Ranked 15th For Education

Live Free or Die Alliance:According to a report by WalletHub, New Hampshire ranked 15th in the nation in 2015 for quality of education. Massachusetts topped the list, while Alaska ranked last.
In developing the rankings, WalletHub analyzed 13 key metrics that ranged from student-teacher ratios and standardized-test scores to dropout rates and lowest bullying incidents.
According to the report, rankings can encourage parents to help their children realize their maximum potential as well as motivate lawmakers to improve schools in their respective jurisdictions.
Others have expressed concern at the methodology behind the rankings, though, and how the individual metrics were weighted.
Data used to create these rankings were obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Center for Educational Statistics, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Kids Count - Anney E. Casey Foundation, Stopbullying.gov, U.S. News & World Report, the College Board, ACT and K12.com.
