Super pay for the subliterate

Scrappleface reports:

The National Education Association (NEA) today hailed Massachusetts school superintendent Wilfredo T. Laboy as “a symbol of hope for public school teachers. The NEA said Mr. Laboy’s failure to pass a basic literacy test proves that the ability to read and write is overrated; therefore teachers whose students can’t communicate in English shouldn’t be criticized.

After all, Laboy “earns more than $150,000 per year in a highly-respected profession.”

In fact, not satire, the superintendent just got a raise.
