- Which school superintendent banks more than Obama? The Hechinger Report covers the rock-star salaries of elected school officials.
- Speaking of ridiculous, an "A" student at a Virginia middle school was recently suspended for opening the door for a visitor who had her hands full. (H/T Boing Boing) Apparently, his actions undermined a district policy that prohibits students from committing random acts of chivalry in entryways, The Tidewater News reports.
