The legislative session in Arizona has barely begun and we’re already seeing potential fallout from last year’s massive #RedForEd teacher walkouts, from legislation hoping to prevent a similar strike, to a new class of teachers who have now become lawmakers.

And educators here in Arizona are not the only ones watching how it all unfolds.

Just one state over, in California, teachers in the Los Angeles Unified School District — one of the largest in the country — are poised to strike after negotiations between union and district leaders have led to an impasse.

So, what’s led to this boiling point — and what could happen next?

For more on that, The Show caught up with Ricardo Cano, he covered the #RedForEd walkouts here in Arizona last year as a reporter for the Arizona Republic and now he works at CALMatters, a news nonprofit in California, where he’s covering the impending strikes there.
