Louisville government, business and education leaders recently agreed to work together to boost Louisville’s college graduation rate. If it works, it will likely put an end to studies like this, which show a low density of college-educated people in Louisville.

From LEO:

Leading among the top 52 cities listed was San Francisco with 7,031 bachelor and graduate-degree holders per square mile.

Filling out the bottom five was Oklahoma City, Jacksonville, Birmingham, Nashville and you guessed it, Louisville, Ky. with 250 degree holders in each square mile of Possibility City.

However, critics of the list point out that it’s subjective formula that rewards cities simply for being more densely populated with geniuses. So look on the bright side Louisville, we’re more sprawl than stupid.
