At a time when a growing number of students are learning to read and write in English, how well do English-speaking states do?
A new report from the American Association of University Professors, based on research from more than 1,000 teachers and students, offers some insight.
The AP’s survey also ranks the states on English-reading, math, science and English-learning outcomes, and shows that states that use English as the primary language and that have the highest number of English language learners and students are on the top of the list.
The top five states in each of these categories are Georgia, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina and Arkansas.
In terms of math and science, Georgia and Texas are ranked first and second, respectively, in the AP’s list of the nation’s best.
But that’s not all: Arkansas and Georgia have the fourth and fifth-highest scorers in math and reading, respectively.
The rankings show that Georgia and Virginia are the best states to learn to read, while Texas, Georgia, North Dakota and Arkansas are among the best.
And although the AP says the state with the lowest percentage of students who read proficiently is South Dakota, the best state for English-readers is Vermont.
That state, according to the report, has the highest percentage of English-literate residents.
The ranking also shows that the top states for math and language achievement are California, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Michigan.
In math, New York, California and Massachusetts have the top scores, followed by the state of Massachusetts.
The states that have among the lowest percentages of students learning proficiently are New Jersey and Florida, which have low percentages of English learners.
The report was released in advance of the start of school this month, the beginning of the school year.
The findings of the AP survey are based on data from the 2014-2015 school year, the most recent available from the U.K. government.
The American Association for University Professeres report includes a survey of the top 200 English-medium schools in the United States, based upon student test scores, teacher evaluations and graduation rates.
The scores of students in English-related subjects have improved steadily since the late 1990s, when the AP started tracking them.
The most recent data shows that students in the English-oriented subjects have seen a decline in the number of those who score proficient in reading and writing, the AP reported.
The number of high-achieving students who are learning English proficiently has increased over the past decade.
The overall number of American students who scored proficient in English has declined slightly from the 2013-2014 school year to the 2014 academic year.
But the number who are proficient in both reading and written English has increased by 10 percentage points.

The study included questions about reading, writing, speaking and math skills.
It found that students who score high on reading and math test scores are less likely to have parents or teachers who are fluent in their native language.
In other words, if they can read and speak English, they may be more likely to become fluent in the language of the classroom.
The results of the study are part of the latest national data released by the Association for Computing Machinery, which tracks computer literacy.
The data show that more than one in three U.T. students, or 33 percent, have read or written in their first three years in school.
Of those students, more than half (51 percent) have learned to read or write in their second or third year.
Those who are less proficient in the subject score low on both math and English skills.
A recent report from Georgetown University showed that students from low-income families are less well-represented in high-poverty schools.
In the 2013, 2014 and 2015 school years, the percentage of low-pregnant women in low- and middle-income schools decreased, the report showed.
In a report published last month, Education Week’s Emily Bazelon noted that the “displacement” of the U to higher-prestige educational systems and other factors have resulted in a lack of opportunity for the students from those areas.
The National Center for Education Statistics reports that the number and percentage of U.P. students with no or limited English language proficiency has increased from 9 percent in 2005 to 22 percent in 2014.
