Patrick Moynihan published an article in 1993 regarding American schools and the proximity to the Canadian border. Take a look at the chart below at the comparisons between the┬áNational Assessment of Educational Progress test scores by state, and the TIMSS math tests of 47 countries. Take note of the top 5 American states: Massachusetts, Vermont, Minnesota, New Jersey, and New Hampshire. Maybe there is something to Mr. Moynihan’s theory.
