After reading scores on Florida's high-stakes third-grade test dropped, nearly one in five students -- 4,200 children -- in Florida's Broward County district may be held back. Some 2,300, or 13%, of Broward seniors and 4,300, or 19%, of Miami-Dade seniors won't be allowed to graduate after repeatedly failing the reading or math exit exams; few high school students who repeat the exams pass.
