Top Stories: Letter Grades For Schools, Runoff Recaps

May 23, 2016

The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News: The education nonprofit ‘Children At Risk,’ has rated some 1,600 hundred schools across Dallas-Fort Worth. While some low-income school are doing better than they have in years past, the organization says too many local schools are failing.

Other stories this afternoon: Voters have their chance to settle runoff elections from the March primaries this week. And for folks who can’t get enough of local politics, there are a few seats in North Texas up for grabs. A few of those races have been pretty contentious.

You can listen to North Texas stories weekdays at 8:22 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
