Rain Feature, 7.21

Lincoln, NEB. - 7/21/2019 - The Nebraska State Capitol is reflected in a puddle on Sunday, July 21, 2019. EMILY HANEY, Journal Star

Are the responsibilities of a university president deserving of total compensation at or exceeding $1 million? Are the responsibilities of a local K-12 school superintendent worth $300,000?

Compare their responsibilities with those of our government officials, such as the U.S. president (set by law at $400,000 under 3 USC 102) or the Nebraska governor ($105,000).

Is it time for our $12,000-per-year legislators to enact some positive guidance to academia?

Nancy Russell, Lincoln
