U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos faced a House subcommittee last week on cuts to federal education spending proposed by President Donald Trump. Those possible cuts equal more than $5 billion and would affect Arizona — in particular when it comes to charter school funding.

Neil Campbell, director of innovation for K-12 education policy at the Center for American Progress, joined The Show to analyze the proposals and Secretary DeVos’ testimony.
