Education is always an issue in New Bedford, and this week, Townsquare Sunday takes a closer look at New Bedford Public Schools. Superintendent Thomas Anderson officially began his new job on July 1st, replacing Pia Durkin. With the opening of school just weeks away, Anderson joins host Jim Phillips for a discussion about the new school year, his goals for students and teachers, and what needs to be done to raise academic achievement in the School District.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
