Sedalia’s Report Card: We’re A Solid B Student

Report Card

Sedalia’s report card is in, but…. who has to sign it? Niche.com is a website that does research and data analysis to help people figure out the best places for them to live. The criteria used by Niche includes: housing, cost of living, education, health and fitness, and more.  Let’s take a second and how we ranked.

Public Schools: B. Sedalia’s schools get a B grade – we’re a varied population with good programs for free and reduced lunches, and decent marks of proficiency in reading and math. But we get a few bad marks for our student to teacher ratio, which is quite high in several Sedalia schools.

Housing: B-.  We get this grade because our median home value is less than the national average. But we get positive marks for having lower median rent than the national average, more home owners than renters, and having a suburban “area feel.”

Crime: C.  We get this ranking based on violent and property crime. While we don’t have a lot of murder or robbery or horrible things like that, what we do have is a higher than average theft, burglary, and motor vehicle theft rate.

Diversity: B+. We get positive marks for a low unemployment rate, high education levels (50% of us have an associates degree or higher), but we aren’t very ethnically diverse. 81% of Sedalia is white, 11% are Hispanic, 4% are African American, and 2% are two or more races.

Here are a few other marks we got:

  • Good for Families: B
  • Jobs: B-
  • Cost of Living: A-
  • Outdoor Activities: B
  • Nightlife: B+
  • Weather: B-
  • Health and Fitness: B-
  • Commute: B+

What do you think?  What do you think Sedalia’s report card should say? A grade of B isn’t so bad, but… we’re not gonna get a dollar for anything less than an A.

Educationally yours,

Behka
