Yes. People shouldn't rely upon age as a factor for employment. But people shouldn't be fired after a sterling career because they're “too expensive”. Merit pay doesn't work because bosses usually give it to their cronies. In the case of teachers, how many of us would like to be judged by the conduct of a bunch of eight graders who refuse to complete their assignments? Really what is needed is fair and honest appraisal of employees through peer review. But that is a very old-fashioned idea that went out in the 80s.

A lot of things went out in the 70s. A lot of things need to be rethought.
