Of course you want your kids to get the best education possible. Then take a second to pat yourself one the back. You picked one of the best places for kids to get a great education.

A report released just days ago puts New Jersey well ahead of the class when it comes to education. As a matter of fact, the Garden state ranks second among all states in the nation.

The results were published by the website Scholaroo which used a pretty complicated method to determine the results, using many different categories, and New Jersey really excelled in many of them.

As an example, the Garden State ranks #1 for Lowest Dropout Rate in the entire nation. And New Jersey is ranked second for Highest Reading Scores, and third for highest spending per pupil.

When you put all these together with all the other findings, it rolls out to be some really great news for kids in New Jersey. Once it's all broken down, New Jersey schools find themselves ahead of every state in the nation, except Massachusetts.

When it comes down to it, let them say what they want about our hair, our accents and how bad the turnpike smells. The thing that matters to us is our children, and when it comes to education, New Jersey is about the best there is. And our kids deserve nothing less.

Take a look at the different categories and how our state ranks...
