WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- New York is ranked 20th in the nation for school systems quality by personal finance social network WalletHub in a survey released Monday.

WalletHub measured each state in 12 key metrics and broke them into two categories: school system rank and education output and safety.
