Tucson Unified School District Backs Out Of Desegregation Forum

The Tucson Unified School District is embroiled in a dispute with Tucson lawmaker Todd Clodfelter after backing out of a planned public forum about a longstanding desegregation case.

The district says it wasn’t so much a public forum as a partisan campaign event, but Clodfelter said he just wanted to have a "nonpolitical, nonpartisan" discussion about the issues surrounding the lawsuit.

Covering all of this is The Arizona Daily Star’s Hank Stephenson and he joined The Show to talk about it.
