"Alternatively, if the problem with merit pay is that measuring teacher
performance is simply too difficult, then we can conclude that Fairfax

teachers are doing a lousy job. After all, why put forth effort if
worthwhile results of your effort – or lack thereof – are undetectable?)"
It made me wonder about our ability to measure security professionals performance in a similar vein.
