Lexington a more educated city than Louisville, per recent study

Here’s a new piece of ammunition in the rivalry between Lexington and Louisville: according to a recent study by WalletHub, Lexington is the most educated city in Kentucky and the 24th most educated city in America.

1. Ann Arbor, MI
4. Durham-Chapel Hill, NC
9. Austin, TX
24. Lexington-Fayette, KY
25. Atlanta, GA
