...quickly realized he was worth way more than that. Could this be that?

If she knew that a "consulate" is not the same as a "consonant"; that a "modular" classroom has nothing to do with a "modeler"; that a global search-and-replace to substitute "superintendent" for "principal" cannot be done on documents that include financial discussions; etc., etc., I'd be more inclined to think this. And she was not low-balled coming in. (To be fair, the board president, who is a commercial loan VP, also missed the superintendent/principal substitution thing even though he was reading the document out loud. It would be hysterical if it weren't so indicative of the total inability of so many to read critically.)

Part of my reason for asking this also is that the last time I heard of anyone getting a raise like this was in the late 80's when some people (software developers) moved to some competitors. Their 25% raises were considered astounding even though the economy was doing great and they were highly skilled employees.
