Scottsdale Unified School District Superintendent Scott Menzel finds himself at the center of one of the key culture wars facing schools across the country right now.

It all began after Fox News aired an interview he did with a liberal Michigan blog in 2019.

Now, conservative state lawmakers are calling for his ouster.

The Arizona Capitol Times’ Wayne Schutsky has been covering the story, and he joined The Show to talk more about it.
