(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Two out of three Clark County high school sophomores have failed the state’s math proficiency exam.

Sixty-eight percent did not pass this year’s test, which is needed to get a diploma.  That’s the highest failure rate for first-time test takers in recent history.

The highest passing rate was at the Advanced Technologies Academy, which focuses on math, with 71%.  Sunrise Mountain High’s passing rate was only 7%.

Clark County students did a lilttle better on reading and science proficiency exams.  They were passed by just over half of the students tested.
