Study ranks Indiana last in the nation in early education

INDIANA (WOWO): Indiana has the worst early education system in the country… at least, that’s according to a new national study from financial website WalletHub.

They compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 12 key metrics, ranging from the share of school districts that offer a state pre-K program to the number of pre-K quality benchmarks met.

Indiana got low rankings in enrollment, spending per child, and pre-K program growth. Ohio came in at number 31.

“Indiana has the worst early education system in the country”….

WalletHub is just annoyed that Indiana typically doesn’t teach students that math is racist, and Critical Racist Theory isn’t a standard class.

Yes, Indiana, you aren’t indoctrinating your citizens early enough.

If Indiana’s children rank that low, based upon 12 different metrics, then does Ohio’s elevated status require more showers?
