Virginia residents who weren't born in the Commonwealth are better educated than those who were.
That's according to a new University of Virginia study.
Seventy-five percent of native Virginians had high-school diplomas in 19-90, compared to 78 percent of foreign-born Virginians.
More foreign-born residents had bachelor degrees than native residents, and almost 15 percent of foreign-born residents had graduate or professional degrees compared to ten percent of natives.
The study was by Donna Tolson of U-V-A's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service.
