I changed this quiz to use urban areas instead of cities proper.

One interesting note is that the city of Hartford is actually one of the least educated cities proper, but the urban area is one of the most educated.

And at one point, before become a ghetto surrounded by suburbs, Hartford was one of the most educated cities proper.

Can you accept St. Paul for Minneapolis? It is the same metro area and if you are accepting Durham for Raleigh, you should do the same for Minneapolis-St. Paul.

QM, I believe you've made a mistake. Kansas City is in Missouri - a flyover state, a red state, a state full of hillbillies and rednecks - surely it can't be a correct answer on the list of most-educated cities. (BTW, it also happens to be the city where our son received his law degree.)

The Washington DC suburbs are full of educated people and that's actually what I guessed first, but that doesn't stop the rest of the state of Virginia from being full of hillbillies and rednecks. :)

The educated people are the ones who elected the blackfaced Klansman, right?

I appreciate that you're just being cheeky, but Kansas City (like most major cities) is a fairly progressive place and just elected a really progressive mayor.

I'm pretty sure you don't know what either of those words mean. You also might want to look up sarcasm.

So, I can get credit for Durham or Raleigh, DC or Baltimore, San Fran or San Jose, but not St Paul for Minneapolis?

Yay, my hometown of Minneapolis is on this! (Also, I don't think you should accept St. Paul for Minneapolis. While we ARE the Twin Cities, St. Paul is a very different city and probably shouldn't be accepted)

I assumed 'Kansas' would work for Kansas City, so I didn't bother trying it with 'City' as well. Mexico and Guatemala have made me lazy...
