In Jennifer Rubin's blog posting today in the Washington Post we read the following in the comments:
When educational requirements are included in the stats, it's clear that public employees are paid less than those in the private sector with equivalent educations.To which this lovely response:
You are confusing education with credentalism. Education is a lifelong process, and a BS or MS in Education is essentially meaningless. How about comparing the total compensation of teachers to their real peer group -- the other college applicants with SATs in the 400-500 range?Cruel, perhaps, but sometimes we must be cruel to be kind.
