Massachusetts is known for many things such as Plymouth Rock, championships sports teams, beautiful landscapes from beaches to mountains, and of course some of the best schools in the country.

Massachusetts is not only home to some of the best colleges in the U.S. but also to some of the best public and private grade and high schools as well. It might not come as a big surprise that three Massachusetts cities were deemed some of the most educated in America.

While we know there are plenty of smart cities in Massachusetts, RoadSnacks recently put together a list of the ten dumbest cities in the state. Hey, they said it, not us.

To reach their "results" RoadSnacks took a look at the cities in Massachusetts that have the highest rate of high school dropouts in comparison to the percentage of the population that is considered "highly educated". While saying the push to attend college can be "overblown" at times, the post also acknowledges the need for education and the importance of completing high school.

It's also worth noting that for this ranking the site only looked at cities with populations greater than 13,000 which left 39 cities in Massachusetts to rank.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
