Correction: January 31, 2013 12:00 am — The introduction to this story incorrectly states that Virginia and Florida have adopted standards that differ according to the race of the student and whether the student is disabled. Neither state has adopted such standards. Florida and Virginia have adopted standards setting different annual goals for subgroups of students in the lowest-performing schools. All individual students must meet the same proficiency standards.
