A new plan to overhaul the state's teacher evaluation system got a unanimous endorsement from the legislature's education committee, but some believe it emphasizes the wrong things. Education commissioner Stephen Bowen and MEA president Chris Galgay discussed the plan. Also, author Linda Killian talked about her new book examining the role of independent voters called "The Swing Vote: The Untapped Power of Independents."
