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.

A proposal to revamp school funding in the state has been a topic of discussion over the last number of years, both at the state Capitol and at the ballot box. And in a column over the weekend, Bob Robb of the Republic makes the case for a grand bargain of sorts, including both tax cuts and increased funding for schools.

Phil Boas is editorial page editor of the Republic. The Show spoke with him to learn about Robb's take.
