Nebraska gets a D+ on public schools report card

Nebraska's public schools aren't making the grade, according to the latest annual review of the nation's public schools from Education Week. The Quality Counts 2011 report gave Nebraska an overall grade of D+, joining South Dakota and the District of Columbia as states who received the lowest grades. Nebraska's overall score of 68.6 was the lowest in the country. Nationwide, public schools received a C grade (76.3). The report ranks schools on chances for success, K-12 achievement, school finance, standards and assessment, transitions and alignment, and the teaching profession. Nebraska received a B- grade in chances for success, but an F in transitions and alignment, including a failing grade in college readiness. This marks the second-straight year Nebraska has received a D+ grade. The state received a C- in 2009.
