The annual Quality Counts Education Survey has been released, ranking states throughout the country on where they stand with education.

According to the national non-profit organization, Idaho ranks near the very bottom in 47th place. Much of that has to do with the system not having teacher merit pay, as well as students not continuing their education past the high school level. Idaho did score well in some areas though, posting high national test scores.

Much of the Students Come First legislation passed in 2011 aims to curb the issue of not having a merit pay system, as well as giving students more availability to online learning, which should help those students living in rural areas.
