Florida dropped 11 spots in a national business ranking, in part because of state schools.

Florida schools helped contribute to the state dropping 11 spots in a national ranking of business-friendly states.

The state ranked 42nd in education, according to the CNBC analysis. That’s down from number 35 in 2011.

CNBC looked at test scores, class size and spending on K-12 education. They also considered the number of higher education institutions in each state.

Hat tip to the Jacksonville Business Journal for bringing the rankings to our attention.
