This is the rundown for Radio Boston for June 28. Carrie Jung is our host.

  • We're looking ahead to tomorrow's Boston School Committee vote on a new superintendent, following an agreement made between state and city officials on a "systemic improvement plan" for Boston Public Schools. We speak with WBUR's education reporter and the executive director of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the vulnerabilities of operating in a global marketplace. We talk with the owner of a Marblehead company that moved its manufacturing back to America. Then, we'll get some context on what producing goods locally means for the country — and Massachusetts.
  • One of the most popular classes at Boston University's Questrom School of Business is lecturer Moshe Cohen's course on negotiation: when to be competitive, when to be collaborative and how to manage your own emotions in the moment. Cohen, author of "Collywobbles: How To Negotiate When Negotiation Makes You Nervous," shares his tips and tricks for being a better negotiator in everything from salary talks to the terms of a car loan to where to go for dinner with your spouse.

This program aired on June 28, 2022.
