    Fat-Cat Administrators at the Top 25

    The salaries of the top 25 college/university presidents average nearly $1 million a year. Probably not surprising news. But when those colleges/universities are examined a little closer:

    -Compensation for the administrators has increased by 1/3 since 2008
    -Student debt is worse than at other schools.
    -Administrative spending is twice the spending on student aid.
    -The percentage of tenured faculty members fell dramatically, while part-time adjunct faculty increased more than twice as fast as the national average for all universities.

    The “worst overall offenders,” the study said, were Ohio State, Penn State, the University of Minnesota, the University of Michigan and the University of Delaware.
    This is what i keep telling folk when they want to blame classroom educators for the the high costs of everything: They've cut classroom investment and quietly shifted those dollars elsewhere, in this case back to administration...and you the taxpayer/sucker who demanded tenure be rescinded(!) haven't seen a damn dime in relief as a result, and in most cases are paying out even more!

    Unfortunately schools have bought into the "executive hype" machine just like corporations, and they have found the need to pump more and more to the top.

    A stupid question perhaps, but how can there be more spending when tenured folks are downward spiraling and part-time help is blowing up? Shouldn't that be saving money?

    Our mouths neurological ass0s
    And psychologically speaking
    We're in a state of mental diarrhea
    Talking sh*t a mile a minute
    Or in a state of constipated notions
    Can't think of nothin' but sh*t, and in this world of stinky futures
    Sh*tty memories and constipated 19 now-nows
    Emerges from the hiney of your head the doo doo chasers

    The OP was a little confusing... it's

    "...presidents at the 25 public universities that pay their presidents the most have seen their compensation soar since 2008."
    I promise I won't do it again
