Education Weekly just posted the quality rankings for each states K-12 education system.  The rankings are based on {taken directly from the education weekly website} “The online version of Quality Counts 2014 provides updated state scores and letter grades for chance for success, K-12 achievement, and school finance.” “….the {K-12 achievement} index analyzes results across three crucial dimensions: current state performance, improvements over time, and equity as measured by poverty-based achievement gaps. As a result, states are rewarded for raising scores over time and narrowing achievement gaps, as well as for posting high rankings for current levels of performance.”  For more details on the other categories check out the link and PDF pages.

Illinois ranks as follows

Chance for Success: 18th & B-

K-12 Achievement:  26th & C-

School Finance: 19th & C+
