A new study says education in Illinois isn't making the grade.  Yesterday, "Education Weekly" released its annual Quality Counts study which tracks key indicators of quality education around the U.S.  Illinois earned a grade of C-plus, but finished below the national average.

Maryland had the nation's top grade, a B-plus while South Dakota was last with a D-plus.

The country overall improved by a half-point over 2011.
