I think this is an area where the NE would win.

It depends on where in each region.
Inner city schools seem to be the worst, and it doesn't even have to be restricted to just education there a lot of violent and drug infested school in the north and south. Schools with metal detectors and constant police presence make it feel like your going to jail everyday. You say the NE wins but to me its not that much better than the south. Most Maryland and Virginia school districts are among the best in the country. Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Florida has some good ones too.

I think it depends, but I think the difference is the presence of county SD's in the South versus the more community based SD's in the NE. I think the latter allows for more community spirit and individuality versus having kids bussed from all over a county to go to school. On the other hand, it seems like county SD's are more integrated and the cultural interaction can be a part of the educational environment. In both regions, you can find your stereotypical "bad" urban schools, but you can find some pleasant surprises, at least as far as I know, in some urban school districts in the NE. For instance, here are some alright to very urban HS's I know of in Upstate NY:
City Honors School
