The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Funding for public education was a big issue at the state Capitol even before the #RedForEd movement took off last year, resulting in a strike and lawmakers approving a pay raise for teachers.

Despite that, it continues to be a big issue this year, as lawmakers debate a proposal asking voters to increase the state sales tax to get more money into schools.

Arizona Republic Editorial Director Phil Boas joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about it.
