In a comment below Mr. Shine says I am incorrect about above and all his public service has been voluntary and he has not been paid for it, I will take Mr. Shine at his word. Mr. Shine has touted his public service and I wrongfully assumed that he was paid and for that mistake I sincerely apologize. It's important to me that Education Matters gets things right and I plainly failed to do so above and again I apologize to Mr. Shine and my readers.
I would however like to point out that he doesn't say what else I got wrong.
