The article focuses on a report from the Milken Institute which showed that Massachusetts remains on top in terms of technology and science. According to the report, California slipped to fourth place, behind No. 2 Maryland and third-place Colorado. California's drop has been attributed to a deterioration in its human capital, specifically the state's failure to prepare students in grades kindergarten through 12, attract top domestic and international graduate students and pull in federal research and development dollars.
