SACRAMENTO (AP) — A study shows California lawmakers are the nation’s most educated.

The Washington, D.C.-based Chronicle of Higher Education says 90 percent of California’s legislators have at least a bachelor’s degree and 84 percent went to a public college.

Virginia is the second most-educated legislature, followed by Nebraska, New York and Florida.

The study released Monday compares education levels of all 50 state legislatures. The Sacramento Bee says Arkansas has the least-educated statehouse: 25 percent of its members didn’t attend college.
