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.
