KTAR News 92.3 FM continues to cover education in Arizona. This week’s focus is on “The Changing Face of the Arizona Teacher.”

In early May, after a six-day teacher walkout that included daily rallies at the Arizona Capitol, Gov. Doug Ducey signed a budget that included a 20 percent increase in teacher pay by 2020, including 10 percent for the coming year.

KTAR News 92.3 FM takes a closer look at what the raises mean for Arizona’s education system and what the teacher movement might mean for state politics.
