'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Is the teacher evaluation process in the state “a failure”? Richard Iannuzzi doesn’t think so. We will speak with the President of NYSUT, New York State United Teachers about the Governor’s pronouncements that the evaluation system doesn’t work, and children have no lobbyists in state government.

Dr. John King, the Commissioner of the Department of Education joins us with his take on the teacher evaluation battle, as well as an in-depth conversation about other critical education issues.

While the Governor's State of the State was busy with references to economic development in the North Country, there is some concern among the green community that he failed to mention the environmental & conservation needs of the Adirondack Park. John Sheehan of the Adirondack Council joins us to discuss the Governor’s environmental track record, as well as how some of Cuomo’s proposals (think energy highway from Canada) could affect the future of the Park.
