For nearly twenty years, Education Week, a national newspaper covering topics in K-12 education, has published its annual Quality Counts report.  This report uses in-depth journalism and research to investigate important issues in educational policy.   Each state is given an annual report card and national education topics are summed up.

The latest Quality Counts report looks at three main indicators for each state: chance for success, K-12 achievement, and school finance.  The report also took a detailed look at accountability within school systems and trends in achievement and poverty-based gaps.

This year, Ohio finished 23rd among all 50 states and the District of Columbia, earning a letter grade of C.  The nation earned a grade of C as well.
