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?
