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.

The coronavirus pandemic has led to disruptions throughout the education system. And, in a column over the weekend, the Republic’s Joanna Allhands writes about some of the issues facing kindergarten. Her column points out how much kindergarten has changed over the past couple of decades and how it has become more academically inclined — which in some ways is a good thing. But during a pandemic, it has also caused some complications.

Phil Boas, editorial page editor, joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about it.
