Washington is America's most literate city, again

Say what you want about the nation's capital, but the folks in Washington can read.

For the second year in a row, Washington tops an annual list of American's most literate cities. The four highest ranked cities, including Seattle, Minneapolis and Atlanta, are the same as in 2010.

The Central Connecticut State University study ranks the nation's largest communities based on six indicators of literacy: newspaper circulation, number of bookstores, library resources, periodical publishing resources, educational attainment, and Internet resources.

    @ fernace:
    Buona sera.
    I know that public elementary schools and high schools are supported by tax dollars.
    The pupils don't pay though. That's what I meant by "free."

      Nope, the pupils don't pay.
      Their parents do, though.
      "Book Rental" and lab fees cost me about 250.00/semester.
      That's not free,in my book.
