Report Ranks Oklahoma 17th in Education Policies (Jan 12, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma's ranking in overall education policies has risen to 17th in the nation despite continuing low marks for student performance and per pupil spending.

The annual Quality Counts report was released by the nonprofit trade publication Education Week. The state ranked 23rd in the report last year.

The state has an overall grade of C+ with an A in Standards Assessments and Accountability — but a D in achievement by students in Kindergarten through 12th grade and an F in spending that includes $9,137 spent per pupil compared to the national average of $11,223.

State schools Superintendent Janet Barresi said the report shows the state has the necessary standards in place and must now implement them in the classroom to raise student performance.
