Nevada's public education system, facing budget cuts, got a D-plus average grade on a national report card released by an industry publication - slightly below a national C average.
The Education Week's "Quality Counts 2008" report showed Maryland, Massachusetts and New York leading all states with B averages.
Nevada's D-plus average gave the state a ranking of 46th among the states and Washington, D.C.
The report's release coincides with word that Nevada K-12 education officials may target new programs, including all-day kindergarten and school empowerment initiatives, in making budget cuts sought by Gov. Jim Gibbons.
