The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Last week, President Donald Trump and United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos called on schools across the country to reopen on their originally planned dates despite the continued spread of COVID-19.

Here in Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey and Superintendent Kathy Hoffman weren’t enthusiastic about that, and Ducey said the state will open schools when it is safe.

The Show spoke with Phil Boas, the editorial page editor for the Republic, about school reopenings and what columnist Robert Robb wrote about it over the weekend.
