Blue states put something like 150% more money into their schools on average than red states do. Seems to me that democrats prefer their constituents to be educated. Following this to it's logical conclusion, Republicans prefer them ignorant. Makes sense. Republicans hold inflammatory issues like abortion and gay marriage in front of their constituent's noses and jingle them like a set of shiny keys whenever they want to pass a law allowing a corporation to strip-mine too close to a city's water supply, or set up a chemical processing plant too near a kindergarten. An uneducated populace is a very good thing for Republicans.
