Administrator Pay-Up Again!

Administrator Pay-Up Again!

College administrator pay is up again! Enough is enough. International students already pay as much as 3X what regular students pay for tuition in the US and in the UK as well in most instances. A recent article in the New York Times points out that despite the global recession and ongoing financial hardships that many students face, college and university administrator pay went up by an average of 1.1%. This might not seem like much but what the article also points out is the ridiculous amount of money that these administrators make. For example, the President of Ohio State University makes about $1.6 million! $1.6 million! Furthermore, many community college Presidents make in the area of $400 thousand annually and up! There is nothing that college and university Presidents do that deserve these types of exorbitant salaries. This is especially alarming considering that while these administrators are giving themselves raises, increases in student tuition, fees and college texts are going up even higher to pay for their ridiculous salaries. Where will it end?
