How did you do in school? Did you graduate? Did you attend college? Either way, looks like you're in a good state for it as Washington was ranked 9th place in most educated states in the nation.
Massachusetts came in first place which makes sense as you basically need a college degree to spell it correctly. Several other east-coast states made the top 5 with the exception of Colorado.
