Idaho Students Outperform Peers

On average, Idaho students scored a 1601 on the SAT. That's well above the national average score of 1509 and above students in most of Idaho's surrounding states, the State Department of Education said Wednesday. For example, students in Washington State scored an average 1564, and Oregon students scored an average 1546, according to the 2010 SAT results. The SAT is a college readiness exam that students take when applying for undergraduate colleges and universities in the United States/John Miller, Associated Press. More here.

Question: But I thought that Idaho had a back-woods education system when compared to Washington and Oregon? What's up?
