To find out, we turn to WalletHub for the answer. Wallethub used two main factors to rank cities across the nation in terms of education. They were educational attainment and quality of education & attainment gap.

While some areas of Texas fared better in the rankings, such as the Austin area, others weren't so lucky. In fact, the four at the bottom of the list were as follows. Placed at 141st was Corpus Christi, 143rd was Beaumont-Port Arthur, 148th was Brownsville-Harlingen, and 149th was McAllen-Edinburg-Mission.

So in short, it looks like some parts of the state will need some help to improved their learning!
