Half of High Schoolers Fail FCAT Reading Test

Nearly half of Florida high schoolers failed the reading portion of the state's tougher new FCAT test this year statewide, and the numbers were similar in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Miami-Dade Superintendent of Schools Alberto Carvalho discusses his district's results.

Principal Accused of Tampering With FCATs

The principal at a Little Havana charter school has been suspended as school officials investigate claims he tampered with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Ramz Academy principal Julio Carrera has been suspended without pay after he allegedly opened sealed FCAT booklets, took notes on questions and gave study guides to teachers, school attorney Carmen Calzon said Tuesday. Ramz Academy is investigating into the matter, and Carrera has been suspended "pending termination," Calzon said. Carrera couldn't be reached for comment Tuesday.
