    I am very proud of the quality of public education in Nebraska, but I believe we have an obligation to continually assess whether our system is meeting 21st Century education needs - Dave Heineman

    History & Geography:
    Nebraska is a mid western U.S. state encompassing the prairies of the Great Plains, the towering dunes of the Sand hills and the panhandle's dramatic rock formations. Lincoln, the capital and a vibrant university town, is distinguished by its soaring state capitol.
    The city of Omaha is home to the Durham Museum, which honors the state's pioneering past in a converted railroad depot.

    Nebraska is roughly rectangular, except in the northeast and the east where the border is formed by the irregular course of the Missouri River and in the southwest where the state of Colorado cuts out a squared corner. The land rises more or less gradually in the west. The great but shallow Platte River, formed in West Nebraska by the junction of the North Platte and the South Platte, flows across the state from west to east to join the Missouri South of Omaha. The Platte and the Missouri, together with their tributaries, give Nebraska all-important water sources that are essential to farming in this agrarian state.

    Natural Resources:
    Two thirds of the High Plains Aquifer lies under Nebraska. Nebraska may have more underground water than any other state. Nebraska's mineral resources are scarce; some petroleum and natural gas; some sand and gravel; some limestone and clays.

    The Bureau of Economic Analysis estimate of Nebraska's gross state product in 2010 was $89.8 billion. Per capita personal income in 2004 was $31,339, 25th in the nation. Nebraska has a large agriculture sector, and is a major producer of beef, pork, corn (maize), soybeans, and sorghum.

    The Reuben, Yet another Awesome Food From Nebraska. Don't listen to New Yorkers; the Reuben was created by a Husker. Yep, you read that right. Back in the 1920s, Lithuanian grocer and Omaha resident, Reuben Kulakofsky put corned beef, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and sauerkraut on rye bread and grilled it.

    Average temperatures are fairly uniform acrossNebraska, with hot summers and generally cold winters. Average annual precipitation decreases east to west from about 31.5 inches (800 mm) in the southeast corner of the state to about 13.8 inches (350 mm) in the Panhandle.

    The U.S. state of Nebraska has a number of 93 counties.
