Sixth- through 12th-grade students in the Miami-Dade, Fla., school district are no longer required to take midterm exams or finals. Officials have made the exams optional for students to reduce the number of tests they take each year. While some teachers support the decision, the teachers union said it eliminates tests primarily designed by teachers to make time for other exams, which are more standardized.
