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 Arizona Supreme Court recently issued a ruling that made it seem likely that the voter-approved Proposition 208 — Invest in Ed — will never actually be implemented. The measure would increase taxes on wealthy Arizonans to increase funding for K-12 education.

In a column over the weekend, Abe Kwok of the Republic criticized the approach of the people who crafted Proposition 208.

The Show spoke with Republic editorial page editor Phil Boas about the column.
