Our education system is among the best in the country. On that strength, Campaign for Vermont suggests we set our sights even higher.
We rank among the 10 best education systems in America That’s good, but we are in a country that now ranks outside of the top 20 internationally. That means Vermont ranks about 30th in the world. Our high school graduates have a lower college graduation rate than we expect; and evidence mounts that in Vermont, like in the rest of America, children of the poor often remain trapped in poverty, despite the education provided them.
