Arizona’s top college Republican and the top college Democrat join me on “Sunday Square Off” to give us their views of the issues that matter to students.

My guests are Judah Waxelbaum, chairman of the Arizona Federation of College Republicans, and David Huff, president of the Young Democrats of Arizona.

Also on ”Square Off,” our 2020 legislative look ahead: Over the next eight weeks we'll give you a head’s up on the issues that we'll be hearing about once the Legislature gets back to work in eight weeks, on Jan. 13.

On this weekend’s show, we get some insights on school funding plan that would get more money to Arizona schools whose students come from homes with high poverty rates. Supporters say poverty is one of the greatest obstacles to students' success.
