Solano County is the 115th most educated area in the country, out of 150 areas measured, according to a newly released WalletHub study.
That’s the bad news.
The good news is that Solano County’s gender education gap is the nation’s second largest favoring women, after Anchorage, Alaska.
“With the fall semester drawing near and higher levels of education correlating with higher median weekly earnings, the personal-finance website WalletHub this week released its report on 2018’s Most & Least Educated Cities in America,” the announcement said. “To determine where the most educated Americans are choosing to settle, WalletHub compared the 150 largest U.S. metropolitan statistical areas, or MSAs, across 11 key metrics. The data set ranges from share of adults aged 25 and older with a bachelor’s degree or higher to racial education gap to quality of the public school system.”
