Cash was able to charm the school committee with engaging answers. He gave some insight into how he would transition from being the “CEO” of a very large district in Memphis to being more hands-on in the much smaller New Bedford schools. He talked of comprehensive solutions to issues like the dropout rate, which he explained could not be fixed by targeting 11th and 12th graders, but should be addressed with fixes in early education to improve the whole “pipeline.” He was also strong when it came to discussing business management, providing the best approach of the three candidates. Cash described a strong relationship with the Memphis (and would be New Bedford) community as well as positive relations with the union.
