Correlation is not Causation

Fact: students in the Midwest have higher SAT scores than students on the coasts.

Does this mean the students or schools in the Midwest are superior to the schools on the coasts?

Read here to find out more.

I wonder what the student per class ratio differs by state. I would assume that perhaps mid-western states may have smaller classrooms. That could be another possible variable in all of this. I also know that mid-western schools emphasize the ACT more than the SAT, so it could just be the stronger student of the mid-west taking the SAT to go out-of-state for college.
