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.

With the delta variant continuing to keep COVID-19 cases high in Arizona and fights over masks in schools, community concerns over the current school year continue to grow.

Are students going to fall further behind with a third consecutive unconventional school year?

Republic columnist Bob Robb is concerned, and he wrote about that over the weekend.

The Show spoke with Republic editorial page editor Phil Boas to discuss Robb’s column.
