You should put what states wear the most uniforms in school. I probably couldn't find it, but, otherwise, I like this site because it has so many information that catches my eye.

What I would like to see is a comprehensive analysis of which states do the best jobs at teaching the students after normalizing as many other factors as possible. For example, which state has the best education for hispanic children whose parents are not divorced who make at least twice the poverty level adjusted for the cost-of-living in their area? The data on here are meaningless to me when they just compile all the data together. It is common knowledge that some states have a higher percentage of "at-risk" students than other states, so even if they are tied in the overall ratings, I would consider the state that had the higher "at-risk" population to be doing better.
