And yet, look at the stark contrasts between the 2 states. I wonder what the reason for that is...

Welcome to the new America. A nation stolen.
New York’s 3rd place finish is entirely due to NY City and its lovely diversity.
Yet for some reason, most of the country looks to California for educational policy, practice, and curriculum....
Texas has a chance to catch up with California.

I went to school in both Cali and the south.
Cali schools were two years behind.
This was in the 80’s.
