I changed this quiz to use urban areas instead of cities proper.

Update 2023. Of the 56 areas with a population over 1 million, the least educated are: Fresno, El Paso, and Las Vegas.

One interesting note is that the city of Hartford is actually one of the least educated cities proper, but the urban area is one of the most educated.

And at one point, before become a ghetto surrounded by suburbs, Hartford was one of the most educated cities proper.

I just looked at your profile to see if you were French (lord knows I struggle conjugating French verbs) - and damn, it was pretty impressive.

I thought they were referring to the levels, that's, like, every main JetPunk language at a higher level than many people's main accounts!

I think that if typing "Salt Lake" works for Salt Lake City then typing "Kansas" should work for Kansas City.

Typing "slc" also works for Salt Lake City on this quiz and other quizzes on Jetpunk involving cities

Love that the #1 city is fourth from the bottom in percentage correct. Made for a real head slapper for me when time ran out and it was the only one I couldn't guess.
