“Why shouldn’t I be a complete cynic about people?” Well there’s this guy…

The AP reports “Some people give back to their community. Then there’s Fresno County School Superintendent Larry Powell, who’s really giving back. As in $800,000 — what would have been his compensation for the next three years. Until his term expires in 2015, Powell will run 325 schools and 35 school districts with 195,000 students, all for less than a starting California teacher earns.”

California’s schools are beleaguered, because the wealthy keep ducking out on taxes. Powell’s defending programs he believes in–with his own salary.

He’s doing something even more important: he’s giving people hope. Maybe humanity’s not so bad…
