List of States with best Colleges in USA – USA States Ranking by Education

America is one of those developed countries where the federal governments are paying special heed to education systems and standards. In spite of this, there is a great difference in the standards of education among various states. Here, it is important to mention that education in America is delivered by three kinds of schools the public, the private, and the home-based schools. In various states, Full Ride Scholarships are being offered and in some colleges, free tuition grant is provided to the students to lift up the educational standards in the country. Full ride scholarships are currently being offering in 86 universities or more.

One might ask what is a full ride scholarship and what does it covers? The answer to this question is quite simple because this is one of the prestigious scholarship awards in a country that covers full educational expenses of a student. Since the tenure of George W.Bush, a special concentration is being paid on the development of various schools to improve the level and standard of education. But, still, America is far behind the developed nations in level and standards of education and the best colleges in all states are one of the good indicating factors in evaluating the literacy rate of that US state. This kind of educational factors also provides a clear indication to rank the dumbest and smartest US states.
