As the income gap widens between college and high school graduates, we're ranking the ten dumbest states in America, determined by the percentage of the population with Bachelor's degrees. Number ten of the group is Tennessee, where 23% of the population has Bachelor's degrees. While Fortune 500 companies like FedEx and Autozone are in Memphis, most of the state's jobs don't require advanced educational degrees. Tennessee has over 82,000 farms, 60% of which are used to raise cattle. The state has a median household income of about $42,000, making it 44th in the country, and has an average SAT score of 1709.
