The closer split between Republicans and Democrats in the Arizona House and the continuing 17-13 division in the Senate led some to believe that certain priorities — such as K-12 funding — would have a larger impact during this current legislative session.

But available numbers indicate that K-12 funding isn't the legislative priority many educators had hoped.

Marsh joined The Show to talk about K-12 funding in the legislature.
