An Arizona charter school held an emergency budget meeting over the weekend after criticism over a lack of public comment that may have violated the state’s Open Meeting Law.

American Leadership Academy Director Glenn Way is also under scrutiny after earning millions of dollars for building his campuses.

An investigation by the Arizona Republic found Way took advantage of Arizona’s favorable charter school laws, and made about $37 million on real estate deals associated with the charter school chain.

To explain what is happening, The Show reached out to the Republic’s senior investigative reporter, Craig Harris.
