58. Education, service and merit can all be measured.
Education and service can be measured with the most accuracy, but the fact that merit can't be measured "as" accurately doesn't mean that its measurement should not have a place.

There are great teachers out there who inspire their students and other teachers, as well. They should be recognized and rewarded.

As for as civil service jobs - God forbid that we should compare teachers to the local idiots who - cough cough - work at our local Department of Motor Vehicles. UGH
