The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

On a party line vote in the Arizona House of Representatives, Republicans approved a bill that would fine teachers up to $5,000 if they were to broach so-called controversial topics without providing “diverse and contending perspectives.”

In a column for the Republic, Editorial Board member Elvia Diaz argued against the bill.

The Show spoke with the Republic's Phil Boas about it.
