Dear Fort Worth Report friend,

Good morning! 

In your Wednesday Report: Our lede examines why a new education nonprofit released nine report cards detailing school performance by each of the eight City Council districts and the overall city. Reporter Jacob Sanchez reports that more schools in the city earned a D or F rating on the student achievement measure than those that got an A or B. Those behind the new report say this has to change.

We will have that story later this week, so make sure you check back here often for new reports.
