I don't like the hairless version, but I do like the idea (even if it is a bit idealistic) that we are not just in it for money:
Of course, we should not be looking to our actors for political advice (that is why we poli sci bloggers are here), but when asked, Matt brings the heat--that it is not just about incentives. And if we want to talk about incentives, how about we consider the incentives of school administrators? That might explain why $$/administration tend to rise faster than $$ per student or per teacher/professor.
Anyhow, Sarah Silverman, you may have to stand in line.
