Aside from the kids in the Palm Beach County jail, tenth-grade students at Mavericks High in Palm Springs fared worse on the FCAT reading test than any of their peers in the county, according to data released last week by the state Department Education.
Only 7 percent of the 54 students who took the FCAT at Mavericks last fall passed the reading portion of the test. The 16 students who took the test while in jail had a 6 percent passing rate.
