EL PASO- El Paso has received good reviews lately in Forbes Magazine and other places. Now, it’s on another list as one of the least educated cities in the United States.
Men's Health Magazine gives El Paso a D- when it comes to education. We landed in 77th place out of 100 cities. The magazine looked at high school graduation rates, school enrollment, and how many people go to college. Most El Pasoans we spoke with think the Sun City deserves a better grade.
"I believe that's a very untrue statement we have a very good engineering program here at UTEP," said Frank Ayala.
"There are always people here who do give their all in school. It sucks that those people who drop out bring us down so low," said Rebecca Moreno.
"We're a college town people come here to get educated. I don't agree with a D-. We're on the border so maybe that's why but, no. We deserve a higher score," said George Cichy.
Madison, Wisconsin placed first as the most educated city. Miami, Florida is last.
