Recapping the School Year in New Bedford [TOWNSQUARE SUNDAY]
The 2020-2021 school year in New Bedford is one that students, teachers and administrators won't soon forget.
Students and teachers spent much of the year learning via Zoom, a challenge for sure. Superintendent Thomas Anderson says students and teachers, along with parents, met that challenge over the last school year.
In particular, New Bedford High School continued to restore its reputation as a successful place of learning.
This week on Townsquare Sunday, Anderson talked about solid improvements in the graduation rate at New Bedford High School and the success of its top students.
The superintendent also explained his decision to have a Boston-based consulting firm review the performance of School Resource Officers in New Bedford, and discussed the recently-approved school budget for the school year that begins in September.
Superintendent Anderson's interview can be heard here:
