When Kevin Huffman was sworn in as state commissioner in Tennessee, he was offered a salary of $200,000 a year, 11% more than his predecessor.

Granted that he believes experience and degrees are worthless, wouldn’t an elemental sense of fairness compel him to cut his own salary, having cut salaries of teachers across the state? After all, a teacher with a masters and a doctorate and 20 years experience will make less than $60,000.

Who provides greater value?
