Several school districts across the Valley are trying to hire enough bus drivers.

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.

In addition to facing teacher shortages and funding challenges, Arizona’s K-12 schools are also trying to figure out how to offer more transportation options. That includes getting students to and from campus, but also to and from before- and after-school activities.

Joanna Allhands of the Republic wrote about school transportation.

The Show spoke with her colleague Phil Boas to learn about her column.
