La. earns C+ in ‘Quality Counts’ school rankings


Louisiana gets a D-minus for overall Kindergarten-through-12th-grade student achievement in a national education publication’s latest annual ranking of state education efforts.

It was a slight improvement for Louisiana in the annual “Quality Counts” report issued by Education Week. Last year, K-12 achievement was graded F.

There were bright spots in Thursday’s report, which gave Louisiana an overall grade of C-plus. Louisiana earned an A for its school accountability efforts, with high scores for assessments and standards.
