Study Finds D.C. to Be Best-Educated City

A new study found that D.C. is the best-educated city in the nation.

According to the Brookings Institution study, almost 47 percent of people in the D.C. area have college degrees compared to 28 percent in the rest of the country, the Washington Post reported.

The area as a whole is not particularly known for erudition. The "best-educated" claim is more readily identified with other places: Seattle; Boston, the nation's first college town; and collegiate state capitals such as Austin and Madison, Wis.

Rounding out the top five are Bridgeport, Conn.; San Jose; San Francisco and Boston.
