This is the Radio Boston rundown for October 7. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Brenda Cassellius, Superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, joins us to talk about how the district is dealing with a host of challenges, including learning loss, food distribution challenges and getting students to school on time, one month into the new school year.
  • Cities across Massachusetts are preparing to welcome families from Afghanistan. A few have already landed, with many more to come. What does the preparation look like? What logistics are involved? We ask Emma Tobin, the Chief Programming Officer at the International Institute of New England.
  • Brandeis Professor Anita Hill joins us to talk about her new book, "Believing: Our Thirty Year Journey To End Gender Violence."

This program aired on October 7, 2021.
