  1. Is that because we have One of the highest Tax rate in United States. Or is it just the area we are just a little bit smarter than everyone else. And now that they’re stating that, two individuals that come out of school in New Jersey make more money then other peoples coming out of other school systems. This is interesting. Oh tax rate in United States. Or is it just the area we are just a little bit smarter than everyone else. And now that they’re stating that, two individuals that come out of school in New Jersey make more money then other peoples coming out of other school systems. This is interesting.

  2. OK…
    Like WalletHub rankings really matter.
    They just aggregate data from other “best of” lists and then factor in other factors like funding, awards from other websites – some legitimate, some with dubious motives, etc, etc.
    .
    WalletHub ranking is not anything you should use to evaluate school “systems” (not even school districts).
