Education Remains A Contested Issue In 2019

Education and school funding were obviously major issues in the last legislative session, and they'll likely be important once again when lawmakers reconvene at the Capitol in a couple of weeks.

The Show spoke with an Arizona principal who recently took part in a panel discussion in D.C. about this.

Dennis Barger is principal of Vail Academy and High School, a K-12 school in the Vail School District, south of Tucson. He talked about how education has changed over the past few years, given today's political situation.
