A new study still ranks Nevada near the bottom of the list for education but there are some bright spots.

According to a new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Nevada ranks 49th among all states.

The Kids Count report showed that the percentage of Nevada high school students who did not graduate on time in 2014-2015 decreased by 24 percent compared to 2010-2011.

However, 66 percent of 3-and-4-year-olds are not attending school and 74 percent of eighth graders are not proficient in math.
