(Undated) - A new report shows Indiana is just getting by when it comes to education reform.
The state was given a C+ in the American Legislative Exchange Council's "Report Card on American Education."
The grade was based on reform policies surrounding academic standards, school choice programs, charter schools, online learning and the state's ability to get rid of bad teachers and hire good educators.
Hoosier students placed Indiana 13th in the country for improving performance on the National Assessment of Educational Progress test, which measures fourth and eighth grade reading and mathematics.
Ohio ranked 35th in student performance while earning a B- for its education reform efforts. In Kentucky, the state was 37th for performance with a C+ for reform.
Students in Vermont earned the state the top performance rank in the nation despite a reform rating of D. South Carolina was 51th among the states and District of Columbia in performance with a reform grade of B.
