South Dakota gets a barely-passing grade from "The Report Card of American Education."

The report, from an organization called the American Legislative Exchange Council, gives South Dakota a D+.

The ALEC group grades the education policies of each state based on state academic standards, charter school laws, home school regulations, private school choice programs, overall teacher quality and policies, and digital learning opportunities.

South Dakota tied with seven other states getting a D+.

North Dakota had the lowest grade with a D, and Indiana's B+ was the highest grade.
