A new Arizona law set to take effect later this month will allow school districts to experiment with new learning environments and new kinds of schedules.

Supporters say the measure is about flexibility and letting schools tailor classes and educational models to meet their — and their students’ — needs.

Emily Anne Gullickson is the founder and president of the education group Great Leaders, Strong Schools and backs the new law. 

The Show spoke with her to learn what, to her, are the key provisions of the law that will have the biggest impact on schools and students.
