Kentucky is the 6th least educated state in America, according to a WalletHub study released earlier this week.

In this study, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 18 metrics under educational achievement and quality of education and attainment gap between genders and races, which were the two key factors it used to determine a well-educated population.

Daviess County Public School Information Officer Lora Wimsatt said she encourages people to refer to the Kentucky Department of Education’s “School Report Card” page for a review of Kentucky’s school districts.

The DCPS performance gets three out of five stars from primary to secondary education.

DCPS scores fall in the middle of the scale.

Owensboro Public Schools Public Information Officer Jared Revlett did not return a request for comments by Owensboro Times.

Its lowest-performing score is high school transition readiness and middle school growth, which are both below average.
