WASHINGTON (WTVA) — Mississippi ranks 20th on a new study looking at the amount of power parents are allowed to have by states when it comes to their children’s education.

The Parent Power Index was released Wednesday by the Center for Education Reform.

The report shows only six states ranked above 80 percent on the report.

The PPI is a web-based report card based on education polices.

The higher the grade, the more parents are afforded access and information about learning options for their children.

Mississippi’s score was 70 percent, enough to move the state 21 spots over the 2013 rankings.

Alabama ranks 47th on the report.
