See? We Don't Just Hate the Upper Class, Either

Not content to control the salaries of superintendents, LI State Senator Fuschillo, who once called for the resignation of former Commissioner of Education Mills, now wants all administrators' salaries and contracts to be controlled at the state level. I can't help wondering how these Republican senators reconcile this sort of thing with their No Government Is Good Government stance.

It's fairly clear that if people on LI regularly pass the budgets of their districts that pay administrators exorbitant salaries, as indeed they do, those people must think that their districts can afford it. A better bill, Paul points out, might call upon districts willing and able to pay those salaries to give up their state aid to the rest of us.
