The fights between the North and South have been going on for years. I have met both some very nice people from the North and South and they all seem to think that the "other" is always wrong. So instead of aruging who's the best, why don't we all "agree" to "disagree" and move on, and be nice to one another?

It all dates back to the early days of our nation. The north had the businesses, banks, and the well educated, while the south had the farms/plantations and the not so well educated.

Most southerners would leave school very early in life so they could work the farms and such, while the northerners would be getting the best of educations.

Thus where the idea that people in the south are dumb comes from. Not saying it's true, but it does have a factual beginning in the southern people being less educated which still holds true to this day by the looks of the graduation numbers and test scores of the south vs the north.

Its not either. There are smart and stupid northerners and southerners. Yes the north has better education and graduation levels. But it goes either way. Its how you are raised and set standards for your family whether you are from the north or south. Who cares honestly it the person and the way their ethic is that is how they should be seen not where they are from or their past cause that can change if the person wants.

Well wavy if that is it and its the pancakes that make the northerners so smart as you say. Then I would have to say its one of 2 things down here then that make the south stupid then.
1. all the dang beans and cornbread
2. all the dang grits

But honestly I dont think its ntohing like that its how you educate and raise the ones around you on how you are in life. And everyone is smart ust in different things.

So what you are saying is that the south has low education numbers because each generation fails to raise their children with the goal of being highly educated? I think I agree with you if that's what you are saying. lol

Schools in the north are at least 3 levels above the ones in the south, if not more.
