Students in Miami-Dade public schools achieved unprecedented gains in every subject on state standardized tests, and in some subjects they pulled ahead of the statewide average.
According to results released by the Florida Department of Education Thursday evening, passing rates for students in Miami-Dade County increased 3 percentage points in English Language Arts exams and 2 percentage points in math exams to 57 percent and 62 percent, respectively, on the Florida Standardized Assessments. The statewide average grew only 1 percentage point in both those subjects, to 54 percent and 60 percent, respectively.
