According to WalletHub, Massachusetts was named the most educated state in the US.

The overall average of college graduates in the Commonwealth is very high compared to most of the country. However, according the latest Census data, Berkshire County has seven cites and towns that are considered the "least educated" in Massachusetts.

Before we roll into this thing, nobody is saying that these locations don't have highly intelligent people, or that anyone is less intelligent than anyone else across the state. The comparisons, along with the data, were compared by the percentage of residents age 25 and over that have at least a bachelor's degree.
