Hawaii Earns a C on State Report Card, Ranks 25th in Nation
From Education Week, December 30, 2016 (excerpts)
This year, Hawaii finishes 25th among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, with an overall score of 73.8 out of 100 points and a grade of C. The nation as a whole posts a grade of C.
Diving into the findings for the three graded indices, Hawaii earns a C-plus in the Chance-for-Success category and ranks 27th. The average state earns a C-plus. Because Hawaii is a single-district jurisdiction, it is not issued a grade for school finance, which analyzes the distribution of funding across districts within a state. For the K-12 Achievement Index, last updated in the 2016 report, it finishes 32nd with a grade of D-plus. The average state earns grades of C and C-minus in School Finance and K-12 Achievement, respectively. More details on results in these categories are reported below….
