Well, now Georgia has one-upped them :). Our Dear Governor Perdue (who I actually like overall. . . ) is giddy with delight that Georgia is now ranked number 46 in SAT score placement. . . . Last year we were tied for last place ;).
Perdue: We've jumped over [Florida, Hawaii, Pennsylvania and South Carolina], and nobody's going to take that away from us.
I'm not sure that there is a line to snatch #46 from our grasp, but whatever thrills him ;).
I remember studying graphs in statistics in high school, and looking at one that showed the distribution of SAT score averages by state. There were three clusters: the highest set of averages were for states that did not require the SAT, the second set was for states that did require the SAT, and the third cluster (no kidding) was Georgia and South Carolina.
. . . Gotta love Georgia.
