For years, American students have consistently ranked poorly compared to most developed nations. And according to a recently released study, the U.S. education system remains mediocre, receiving a C− grade, for the third year in a row, according to Yahoo Homes.

The K-12 Achievement Index, one indicator in Education Week’s recently released “Quality Counts” report, measures key education outcomes and provides ranks and grades for each state based on their commitment to improve educational policies and practices. 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the states with the best and worst scores for K-12 achievement.

Oklahoma is listed at No. 10 with a D in student achievement, driven in part by poor proficiency scores in reading and math, especially among eighth graders, according to Yahoo Homes.
