Teacher: State Budget Won't Stop Arizona Classrooms 'Bleeding To Death'

The closer split between Republicans and Democrats in the Arizona House and the continuing 17-13 division in the Senate led some to believe that certain priorities — such as K-12 funding — would have a larger impact during this current legislative session.

But available numbers indicate that K-12 funding isn't the legislative priority many educators had hoped.

One of those educators is former Arizona Teacher of the Year Christine Marsh, who ran for the State Senate last year and lost a close race to Sen. Kate Brophy McGee.

Marsh joined The Show to talk about K-12 funding in the legislature.
