LAS VEGAS (AP) — A new report once again says students in Nevada have a lower chance of success than their counterparts in any other state.

The magazine Education Week on Thursday 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.

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.

State superintendent Dale Erquiaga called the measurement "a little unfair" because the ranking is based largely on factors outside the school system's control.

He says the report is a call for the entire community to act, not just the school system.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
