RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- Nevada gets another bad grade when it comes to education.

On Thursday, the magazine "Education Week" released its annual Quality Counts report, which compares states by factors including student performance and school financing. It combines those with demographic data, such as parent education level, income and language abilities.

Washoe County School District Superintendent Pedro Martinez said, "Unfortunately, most of the states that are in that ranking, they've been doing reforms for the last ten years. Nevada has been doing reforms for the last, within the last five years, so it's going to take some time."

Nevada earned a "D" grade and ended up last on the list, behind Mississippi and New Mexico. The state has been in 51st place on the ranking since 2010.

5 years and minimal progress yet we're told to wait. UNACCEPTABLE. FIRE PEDRO.
