My family always put a great value on education, and we did everything we could to stay in school and get a degree. It's not always easy for people to obtain a college education, but the best part about that is - there's no age or time limit on making yourself a better person! If you want to go to college when you are 65 years old, you can do that because we live in a free country, and that is always a possibility for ALL Americans.

That being said, there are some cities in America who have a disadvantage to obtaining an education, and according to our friends at The Street, the top 20 Least Educated Cities are below. These are based on attainability and quality of education, so you can imagine how surprised we are that Lafayette has ended up on this list. Stay in school, y'all!
