Top Stories: Exam Grades Manipulated At Dallas School, Tarrant Co. Candidates Face Off

Josh Davis

The top stories this afternoon from KERA News: Administrators at Gilliam Collegiate Academy in Dallas told staffers to “manufacture or manipulate” exam grades—that news came in a report released Tuesday. It raises questions about whether some students graduated who didn’t earn the proper credits.

And State Rep. Charlie Geren is in one of the toughest primary fights in Texas. Entrepreneur Bo French is challenging the 15-year House veteran in a district that stretches from Fort Worth to the northwest corner of Tarrant County. 

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