California Ranks Low in K-12 Evaluation

State Public Schools Receive an “F” in State-by-State Rating

On Monday, January 7,  Students First released its comparison of all US states’ K-12 educational  policies and governance.  This is a rating of how well the adults are serving the children in their public educational systems.  While no state earned an A, the results cut across party lines, providing some surprising results.  The highest-ranking states were Florida, Louisiana and Rhode Island.   F’s were given to Alabama, California, Iowa and New Hampshire.

States were rated on three criteria:

  • Personnel decisions based on meaningful evaluations of teachers and principals to elevate the education profession
  • Empowerment of parents with adequate information and choice
  • Spending resources wisely and governing well
