    I think any increase in her compensation must be approved by the SUNY Charter Institute. She did ask for an increase a year or two ago.

    She operates 22 charters and hopes to operate 100.

    •  If hers was truly a private sector job (4+ / 0-)

      subject to market conditions and challenges and hers to succeed or fail at on merit then I wouldn't have a problem with her compensation even if it was 10 times higher. But it's not. She has a private sector salary doing pseudo-private sector work, given that she's getting free rent and other government aid.

      This is a horrible model for public-private partnership.

      •  It's the typical model. (5+ / 0-)

        I haven't yet seen one - not one! - of these so-called "public-private partnerships" that don't amount to a free ride for the private "partner" in the arrangement.

        They're nothing but a trough for corrupt pigs to feed at.

          Early in the republic, e.g. the first national bank, the Erie Canal. But once railroad and telegraph companies started buying politicians, the fix was in. In concept PPP's are a good idea, and done right they can still benefit many people. But all too often they're all about corporate socialism.
